Dear SOS: Since the sad demise of the Velvet Turtle Restaurant, our favorite dish, Beef Wellington, seems to have disappeared. I would appreciate any help with a recipe.
Dear E.A. Benson: Beef Wellington had its day in the ‘60s and ‘70s, when numerous Continental restaurants (most long gone), served the dish. We’ll keep our eyes open for restaurants serving it these days and let you know. Meanwhile, how about a recipe to assuage your nostalgia? It’s a classic to keep in mind for entertaining or that special occasion.
