The cost of Thanksgiving has gone up over the years, from a mere $35 in 2002 to approximately $50 this year. But yes, if you choose to wash away a prominent part of your bank account during the festivities, we’d recommend making a reservation at the Old Homestead Steakhouse in New York.
The most expensive Thanksgiving dinner comes with a price tag of $35,000 for a family of four. The extravagant meal entails nine courses, complete with gold flakes of course. Think expensive bottles of wine, Champagne, Scotch, four grandstand seats at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade; a $6,000 gift card to Bloomingdale’s; and dancing lessons at Fred Astaire dance studios to learn the Turkey Trot, a popular dance from the early twentieth century. It’s more an experience than a sit-down meal, we’d say.
Considering you are paying a hefty amount for a meal, you can expect a lavish spread of delicacies including roasted farm-raised organic turkey stuffed with a dressing of seven pounds of imported prized ground Japanese Wagyu filet mignon, turkey gravy made from renderings infused with Château Mouton Rothschild, butternut squash infused with winter black truffles, whipped sweet potatoes topped with three pounds of Royal Osetra 000 caviar, and more.
“We know its over-the-top expensive, but Thanksgiving comes once a year. If you can splurge for this, you have a lot to be thankful for,” said co-owner Marc Sherry.
