For the third year in a row, the Old Homestead Steakhouse in the city’s Meatpacking District is serving up a costly Thanksgiving – this time, valued at a whopping $50,000.
A mind-blowingly expensive Thanksgiving menu in steakhouse Old Homestead, whose claim to fame is being over 100 years old, features everything from caviar-topped sweet potatoes to foie gras stuffing.
The star of the table is a 20-pound organic, farm-raised turkey at $85 a pound basted in $17-an-ounce extra virgin olive oil from Italy. Luxury meal continues with $465-per-pound piece of Wagyu beef imported from Japan, $54-per-pound foie grass, sweet potatoes garnished with $1,600-per-ounce caviar and garlic mashed with creamy $35-an-ounce imported white Stilton cheese and pumpkin ice cream made with $4,200 eggnog sauce.
That’s not all. The dinner is also accompanied by out-of-this-world gravy that has been infused with bourbon priced at $2,890 a bottle. The steakhouse’s orange cranberry sauce included wine from France that costs $1,750 bottle.
Co-owner Marc Sherry told ABC News that it’s these unique elements in each recipe that make the dinner exceptional.
“I have to say that when someone pays $50,000 for this dinner, I hope he’s not counting calories,” Sherry said, with a laugh. “The culinary team here at Old Homestead goes through great lengths to find the ingredients that make this so special. It’s a collaborative effort of all the culinary staff here.”
He added: “Our executive chef just wanted to bring Thanksgiving dinner to another level and this year, we definitely have.”
Purchasers of this Thanksgiving experience also receive four tickets to an upcoming Giants game (valued at $10,000); one night at the Waldorf with room service and breakfast in bed (valued at $5,000); limousine transportation while in NYC (around $2,000); and a Fifth Avenue shopping spree (totaling $7,500).
