The iconic Beef Wellington is a time-honored dish. You’ve got a stunning seared filet mignon that’s covered in prosciutto and duxelles and wrapped in a puff pastry.

Chicago-based chef Michael Ponzio, also known as @chefponzio, wanted to do something a little different over at his restaurant Union League Club of Chicago to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

That’s where he whipped up this exclusive Surf & Turf Wellington.

Made with the classic ingredients of a traditional Beef Wellington, the new creation features the addition of a 3-oz Lobster Tail.


While the Wellington was a New Year’s Eve exclusive, Chef Ponzio told us he sold at least 60 that evening, and the dish will absolutely make a comeback in the near future.
