If you don't have Thanksgiving plans yet, don't worry; there's still hope. The Old Homestead Steakhouse—a legendary, century-old restaurant on 9th Avenue in Manhattan—still has reservations available for their annual Turkey Day package. Of course, there's just one catch: you'll need to throw down about $50,000 to save a seat at the table.
According to Gothamist, Old Homestead isn't just baking a Butterball and some Pillsbury rolls for their ridiculously expensive Thanksgiving feast. Instead, the restaurant is pulling out all the stops, allowing lonely millionaires a chance to forget their sorrows as they poke at Wagyu beef and caviar-topped sweet potatoes.
Here’s just a taste of the over-the-top items Old Homestead is serving up next Thursday:
- A 20-pound free-range turkey basted in extra-virgin olive from Italy.
- A $465-per-pound piece of Wagyu beef imported from Japan.
- Some $54-per-pound foie gras.
- Sweet potatoes garnished with $1,600-per-ounce caviar.
- Pumpkin ice cream made with $4,200 eggnog sauce.
And while all of that amounts to some seriously high-priced foodstuffs, the dinner doesn’t quite total $50,000—and Old Homestead knows it. That's why the restaurant’s Thanksgiving package also comes with four tickets Giants tickets, a room at the Waldorf Astoria, a limousine ride, and a $7,500 shopping spree in Midtown, according to Gothamist. Oh, and if that limo driver needs a lunch break, customers can also take a horse and carriage ride through Central Park. All of those extra amenities total close to $25,000.
If you’re part of the .0001 percent able to afford Old Homestead’s holiday bonanza, let’s just say you have a lot to be thankful for.
