SE MI: Where can I get Beef Wellington?

Hi, I've been craving Beef Wellington for a couple years now, but can't find it anywhere. I made it once, but it was so expensive and time-consuming I've been reluctant to do it again. (It took several days and around $150). Does anyone have any information? I'm hoping to find the real deal, done well, but will accept substitutes. :> Beggars can't be choosers....

    The Holly Hotel has been known to have that dish. I've never tried it. I'd call ahead to make sure it's on the menu (or find out when it will be).

    Fun place for an excursion.

      It's been way too many years since I worked there in college, but the Lord Fox in Ann Arbor serves Beef Wellington.

        IIR the Lord Fox no longer exists. There is another restaurant there now.

          No, that's Fox & Hounds that no longer exists (and they also had beef Wellington). The Lord Fox is very much still there.

            Does that mean something moved into where the Fox and Hound used to be? What is it?

                So the Lord Fox still exists in the same spot and no restaurant is where the Fox and Hound used to be?
                A vacant lot in BH? I wonder how much that is selling for.

                  Supposedly a new building is coming on that spot, but the lot has been empty for a while now. With so many "for lease" signs in the area, you wonder why they bothered to build something new.

        The Chop House in Ann Arbor serves a very nice version, but be prepared to pay dearly for it.

          Kiernan's in Dearborn has Beef Wellington. I haven't been there in years so I can't vouch for deliciousness.
