Inside the $50K decadent Thanksgiving feast Served in NYC
Come join Lydia and myself as we splurge at The Old Homestead for a decadent feast this Thanksgiving in New York City, profiled here on ABC News.
The star of the table, an $85 per pound, free-range, organically raised turkey, is deliciously seasoned with an exotic spice mix imported from the Middle East. It is basted with imported $17-an-ounce extra virgin olive oil from Italy. The turkey stuffing is more than your average stale bread and meat. Old Homestead takes it up a notch by adding $465 per pound imported Japanese prized Wagyu beef, $54-a-pound foie gras and $46-a-loaf sourdough bread imported from the U.K.
The rich meal 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. There were two kinds of mashed potatoes: sweet potatoes topped with $1,600-an-ounce caviar and garlic mashed with creamy $35-an-ounce imported white Stilton cheese.
In previous years, the Old Homestead included an engagement ring in the Thanksgiving dinner. For 2016, the package includes other non-edible delights like a Fifth Avenue shopping spree, a one-night stay at the renowned Waldorf Astoria hotel, four tickets to the Nov. 20 NY Giants-Chicago Bears football game at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey and four tickets to prime seating at the iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Apparently, they serve 3 party seatings of 8 people each and every year, this decadent feast is a sellout! We are dying to know who will be dining with us at this year’s dinner!
By the way, kidding about our presence at The Old Homestead dinner….I am having Thanksgiving with friends and family in Brooklyn and Lydia will be with same near Boston.
Happy Thanksgiving, ya’ll, enjoy your own decadent feast!
