For the Beef:

Season the beef with salt and pepper, and sear in a pan with 2 ounces olive oil, until caramelized on all sides. Place in oven, and cook to an internal temperature of 128 degrees. Remove from oven cover with foil and let rest 5 minutes. For the Red Wine Sauce: Sauté the 4 tbsp finely chopped onion over low heat for 2 minutes, then pour in the red wine. Add the smashed garlic and thyme, raise the heat, and cook until the wine is reduced by half. Remove the pan from heat and stir in butter, followed by the mustard. Season with salt and pepper.

For the Grapes:

Arrange grape clusters on a baking sheet. Drizzle with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast in a 450-degree oven about 15 minutes, until skins are crisp, and grapes are slightly softened. For the potato purée: Bake the potatoes until cooked through, peel and pass through a strainer or food mill, and place in a sauce pot. Add cream, then add just enough milk to achieve a loose potato purée, then add butter, horseradish, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

For the Garnish:

Coat asparagus with olive oil and grill the asparagus over high heat for 5 to 8 minutes and cut into thirds. Wrap the purple potatoes in aluminum foil with a light coating of olive oil, salt and a branch of fresh thyme, then bake in a 325-degree oven until cooked, about 20 minutes.

To serve:

Spoon the horseradish potato purée onto the center of the plate. Slice the beef, and place 2 slices on each plate. Pour some red wine sauce over the beef. Garnish each plate with figs, purple potatoes, asparagus and a cluster of grapes. Sprinkle parsley on top.
