To some it's passe, outdated or an oddity But, my DH wants to find a restaurant that serves a good, traditional Beef Wellington. Any recommendations? Thanks.

    You may need a time machine!

      Perhaps, but a more helpful post addressing my inquiry would be greatly appreciated. There has to be some place that serves this dish.

        Hi Gwendolen - did some research for you and found that The Whip Tavern in Coatesville, PA serves Beef Wellington the fourth weekend of every month (which by looking at the calender, should be this weekend) Check the dinner menu on their website and scroll down to the weekend specials at the bottom. They have a different featured special for each weekend of the month. www.thewhiptavern.com I have never eaten at The Whip, but it's definitely on my list. Reviews for their food are very good and the rest of their menu selections sound wonderful. Would love to see a review from you if you do venture out that way. There are a few others I found, but they are in North Jersey, which may be too far for you.

          Curly I have eaten at the whip and it is a very good pub. Gets crowded on weekends. Have not had the Beef Wellington.

          I think the other places to look for Beef Wellington are the Four Seasons and LaCroix. Four Seasons has featured it at its brunch in the past. Worth asking.

          The General Warren Inn, way out in Malvern, has it if you want to travel.

          It is definitely traditional ... to the point of old fashioned and stodgy.

            Try the Century House on 309 just north of Colmar, PA. They had it the last time I was there. This is a good place for any meal.

            Thank you all so much! I've been Googling it in Philly, but we don't mind traveling a bit. Your suggestions are most appreciated!
