As for filet, they are very lean and very tender, but that comes at a cost. To be that lean and tender, they get very little work, which in the end means very little flavor on its own - one of the reasons why restaurant preparations almost always pair a filet with some kind of sauce.
Agreed. Grand Street Cafe in KC makes a filet that is amazing, largely because of the sauce.
