Do you eat with your eyes closed?
And for me, it's not that the filet "supports" those flavors... it's that it needs accessories to be standout.
Anyway, it's your steak. If you want to eat something that costs more and tastes worse, that's your prerogative.
Being totally serious, I won't turn down a filet. There's just several other cuts I'd order before that, and a few other entrees entirely. But if that's what's offered, I'll be happy.
