Be thankful for being rich with this $35,000 Thanksgiving dinner
If you're tired of the same ol' average Thanksgiving dinner, that's nothing that $35,000 can't solve.
Old Homestead in the Meatpacking District is now offering a nine-course Thanksgiving dinner for four, coming in at a mind-boggling $35k. Eight seats still remain for the feast (which comes out to $8,750 per person, and can be eaten at the restaurant or catered at the location of your choosing), and bookings are only available in multiples of four diners (sorry, wealthy loners!). If you're wondering how it could possibly be so expensive, here's everything you'll be treated to, should you decide to drop the requisite dough/ditch your family's dinner:
- Squab stuffed with rich foie gras soaked in $5,000-per-bottle Courvoisier L'Esprit Cognac.
- Roasted, farm-raised, organic turkey stuffed with 7lbs of ground Japanese Wagyu filet mignon.
- Turkey gravy made from renderings infused with $1,750-per-bottle Chateau Mouton Rothschild.
- Cranberry-orange relish with Gran Marnier.
- Butternut squash infused with winter black truffles.
-Creamy mashed potatoes with Swedish moose cheese.
-Whipped sweet potatoes topped with Royal Osetra 000 caviar.
-Poached & bourbon-soaked pears with pumpkin paste dusted with 24-carat gold flakes.
And it doesn't end there -- in addition to the overindulgent banquet, attendees will also be treated to grandstand seating at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, a $6,000 gift card to Bloomingdales with limo service, and dancing lessons at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio.
"We know it’s over-the-top, but Thanksgiving comes once a year," co-owner Marc Sherry said in a press release. "If you can splurge for this, you have a lot to be thankful for."
And if you're one of those weirdos who'd rather not drop all your savings on Thanksgiving dinner, Old Homestead also offers a traditional meal for an easier $65.
