Carpet Bag or Carpetbagger Steak in Los Angeles?

Magdeline28 | Oct 28, 2013 05:58 PM

So I asked my Dad, who's visiting LA in a few weeks, what his top three favorite foods are so I can indulge him during his visit. One I'm already making, one is lobster and he lives on the east coast, so that wouldn't really make sense ($3/lb vs. $15+/lb!), and the last one was Carpetbagger Steak. He tells me it's a filet that's filled (like a carpet bag) with oysters or bleu cheese.

I've done some research online and cannot find ONE place in LA that serves this unique dish. Some call it Carpet Bag steak; others, Carpetbagger. It's apparently a favorite of Australians, but of the few Aussie restaurants I found, their menus had nothing like this. Just wondering if anyone has heard of this and/or knows where I might be able to find it in LA??
