There seems to be a “national day” for just about everything, so...

In celebration of National Filet Mignon Day, the high-end steakhouse chain Morton’s (73 locations) will offer $1 “petite” filet sandwiches in the bar area from 4:30 to 10 p.m. Thursday, while the supply lasts. The Sacramento Morton’s is inside the U.S. Bank building at 621 Capitol Mall; 916-442-5091.

Filet mignon (French for “tender fillet”) is cut from the narrow end of the beef tenderloin and is notable for its tenderness — and cost. Its leanness (and, thus, lack of flavor) is one reason it’s often served with a rich sauce, or comes wrapped in bacon, a common technique in the 1950s and 1960s. We’ll take the bone-in ribeye, please.
