This Is America’s Most Expensive Thanksgiving Dinner
New York City’s Old Homestead Steakhouse is serving America’s most expensive Thanksgiving dinner at a price tag of $76,000.
The restaurant will be offering the country’s priciest platter for the fourth year in a row, flying in an array of high-end ingredients from around the world.
The dinner includes gravy with turkey renderings and Pappy Van Winkle bourbon ($3,300), sweet potatoes with Caspian Sea caviar ($1,600/oz.), mashed potatoes with Swedish moose cheese ($455/lb.), butternut squash with black truffles, and an orange cranberry sauce made with whole cranberries infused with Grand Marnier, aged balsamic vinegar ($60/oz.), and wine.
The turkey ($105/lb.) is covered with spices and served alongside a smoked cured bacon slab of Japanese imported pork ($225/lb.), orange marmalade glaze with Dekopon oranges ($75/orange), and special reserve Grand Marnier ($1,800/bottle).
The table also includes mixed berries with a 1968 champagne sabayon cream sauce, king oysters ($100 each), stuffing with Japanese Prized Wagyu beef ($475/lb.), foie gras ($54/lb.), and sourdough bread ($46 a loaf), and Wagyu beef lollipops with a peppercorn sauce made from special reserve Louis XII cognac ($4,800/bottle).
The drink selection offers Cristal, Dom Perignon, Opus One and Silver Oak wines and champagnes, and a 40-year-old port wine, but diners won’t just be paying for their meal.
They’ll also get four tickets to Hamilton, a Black Friday shopping spree on Fifth Avenue for $7,500, a two-night stay at a luxury suite at the Mandarin Oriental ($4,395), a limousine for their travels, a guided tour of the city, dance lessons at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, a $260 carriage ride through Central Park, and a $20,000 Ulysse Nardin watch.
The restaurant takes one reservation for a party of ten at the restaurant on Thanksgiving (which is already booked), and reservations at homes and offices throughout the month.
For those who don’t want to shell out the $7,600 per person, the restaurant also has a traditional prixe-fixe menu with all the Thanksgiving favorites for $70 a head.
