What's on the Menu of This Restaurant's $50,000 Thanksgiving Dinner?
Bust out your solid-gold Pilgrim hat and dig in!
Don't feel like cooking this Thanksgiving? Gothamist reports a holiday meal deal worth considering.
New York City landmark The Old Homestead Steakhouse has been serving its medium-rare wares for more than 100 years, and now the historic house of meat has something special for people who don't have T-Day plans, but do have a whole lot of cash: The $50,000 Thanksgiving Day Dinner.
As listed by Gothamist, the menu includes:
- A 20-pound free-range turkey
- $465-per-pound piece of Wagyu beef imported from Japan
- $54-per-pound foie gras
- Sweet potatoes garnished with $1,600-per-ounce caviar
- Pumpkin ice cream made with $4,200 eggnog sauce
Sounds good, but not quite $50,000 good, right? Well, don't put your wallet away just yet, there's more. You'll also get:
- Four tickets to an upcoming Giants game (valued at $10,000)
- One night at the Waldorf with room service and breakfast in bed (valued at $5,000)
- Limo transportation while in NYC (valued at $2,000)
- Fifth Avenue shopping spree (totaling $7,500)
- A horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park
Alas, the list of goodies does not include a Taser-armed guard who will zap any family member who brings up politics or asks why you're not married yet, but if you have the cash, this seems like a good deal to us. Just think, no dishes to do and a limo is a great place to sleep off your tryptophan coma.
