Help!! I noticed Garde Manger has bavette(minute steak and frites(fries) on the menu at exorbitant prices! I will be having dinner there on Thursday night. Hopefully this is not a bad omen(i.e. their menu perhaps, I am fearful, serves ordinary fare, translated into French at inflated prices!)
I am a humble, prairie girl who only remembers bavette(flank steak) to be a very cheap cut of meat(minute steak, london broil, flank steak). Why is it so elevated here ? Please , could someone explain why the french think such a cheap cut of meat is worthy of exorbitant prices?

I noted that Garde Manger serves it as, bavette and frites, please ! I have memories of my mother serving it quite regularly because it is/was a very cheap cut of meat!! It was ok, she ran it over a broiler quickly, splash of wine, carmelized onions and mushrooms, fine , but cheap! Now, I will not even go into how disappointing another cheap cup of meat , hanger steak at L Express was, yuk!!
