Boston's best dishes of 2011
Jonathan Wiggs/Globe Staff
I rarely order filet mignon. If I’m going to eat steak, I’m going to do it really carnivorously, with a cut I have to gnash my teeth over. But Catalyst’s beef tournedos, essentially a smaller version of filet mignon, won me over in a big way. The meat is incredibly tender, but it still manages to have plenty of flavor, augmented by garlic-parsley sauce, Bordelaise sauce, rainbow chard, and taleggio ravioli.
