What Makes This Thanksgiving Dinner Cost $76,000?
I probably do not I have to say this out loud, but I will never pay $76,000 for any meal. I can think of a million things I'd rather spend that money on.
The Old Homestead Steakhouse in New York City is serving up a Thanksgiving dinner that you would have to take out a loan just to order. Co-owner Marc Sherry says the $76,000 meal isn't just a dinner, "you're creating memories."
Here's everything you get for that steep price tag:
- $100 imported king oysters with Opus wine mignonette sauce.
- Inch-think, $225-per-pound smoked bacon slabs, cured from an imported Japanese black boar, topped with an orange marmalade glaze made from $75 Dekopon oranges and $1,800 special reserve bottle of cognac.
- Lollipops of the $475-per-pound Japanese Wagyu beef, served with peppercorn au poivre dipping sauce infused with $4,800 Louis XIII cognac.
- Organic, free-range $105-per-pound turkey basted in $17-per-ounce Italian olive oil and seasoned with Middle Eastern spices.
- Whipped sweet potatoes topped with $1,600-per-ounce black caviar from the Caspian Sea.
- Mashed potatoes with $455-per-pound imported Swedish moose cheese.
- Gravy infused with $3,300 special reserve Pappy Van Winkle bourbon.
- Stuffing that's a mix of of $54-per-pound foie gras and a $46 sourdough loaf.
- Cranberry sauce created from a mash of organic cranberries and a $1,750 French Cabernet Sauvignon reduction and an extra dash of $1,800 orange liquor.
- Strawberries dipped in a sabayon cream sauce made with a vintage 1968 Cristal champagne.
The dinner also features four tickets to Hamilton, limo service, two-night luxury suite stay, $7,500 shopping spree on Fifth Avenue, and a $20,000 Ulysse Nardin watch.
