Beef Wellington is intended to be a show-stopping dish, a chef’s way of showcasing his or her technique. It has many components. Filet mignon is the foundation. Pâté de foie gras and mushroom duxelles are the mortar between the meat and the golden puff pastry that encases everything. If any of these textures or ratios is off — if the steak is overcooked, the pastry gets soggy, or there isn’t enough mortar to hold the savory jelly roll together — the dish falls apart.

At Marcel, Ford Fry‘s Westside steakhouse located in the old Abattoir space, the printed menu lists beef Wellington in its own fancy box. A large portrait of the Duke of Wellington, for whom the dish is named, hangs near the dining room’s entrance.
