If money is tight, stay away from the Old Homestead Steakhouse in Manhattan next Thursday. Their extravagant Thanksgiving Day feast with nine courses will cost a whopping $35,000 for a group of four 1 per centers. What’s the use of an opulent spread without edible gold? Nine courses will arrive at the table complete with a serving of gold flakes too. To put this into perspective, this year it will cost a family $50 to prepare the dinner at home.
With the dinner costing $8,750 per head, the group will be served with fine wines, expensive Champagnes and spirits. Extravagant menu include roasted farm-raised organic turkey stuffed with a dressing of seven pounds of imported prized ground Japanese Wagyu filet mignon, turkey gravy made from renderings infused with Château Mouton Rothschild, butternut squash infused with winter black truffles and whipped sweet potatoes topped with three pounds of Royal Osetra 000 caviar, and more.
According to Marc Sherry, co-owner of the Old Homestead Steakhouse they want to add some excitement to the boring Thanksgiving dinner full of gravy, stuffing and pumpkin pie. They want to serve a dinner with attitude. He continued “We know its over-the-top expensive, but Thanksgiving comes once a year. If you can splurge for this, you have a lot to be thankful for.”
In addition to food, four grandstand seats at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a $6,000 gift card to Bloomingdale’s and dancing lessons at Fred Astaire dance studios to learn the Turkey Trot, a popular dance from the early twentieth century are also a part of the deal.
