A gold turkey makes all the difference.
For some, Thanksgiving means spending time with family – but for others, the holiday is all about opulence. At least that’s what Old Homestead, a steakhouse in New York City, thinks.
This year the restaurant is offering a $150,000 Thanksgiving dinner – nearly double the $76,000 dinner it offered last year – in honor of its 150th anniversary.
7 THANKSGIVING SHORTCUTS THAT MAKE MEAL-PREP A BREEZE
The expensive meal feeds 12 and is made with the finest ingredients available including a 25-pound free-range turkey basted in imported olive oil and covered in edible gold, bread and pork stuffing made with $475-per-pound pork from Japan and served with gravy infused with a $3,300 Pappy Van Winkle bottle of bourbon.
The extravagent dish is topped with gold flake.
But it’s not the only thing this bird is stuffed with – nestled inside the crispy turkey seasoned with Middle Eastern spices is a set of keys to a 2018 Maserati Levante, which goes for over $75,000.
HOW MANY CALORIES ARE IN A THANKSGIVING MEAL?
“That’s what this is all about: Opulence,” Old Homestead co-owner Marc Sherry told Yahoo Finance. “We source things from all over the world — Japan, Ukraine, Italy, the Middle East.”
The luxurious meal continues with a Wagyu steak salad, butternut squash topped with $1,600-per-ounce caviar from the Caspian Sea and mixed wild berries served with a champagne sabayon cream sauce.
A Japanese Wagyu beef salad rounds out the decadent meal.
And then you can wash it down with a selection of Cristal, Dom Perignon, Opus Oneand Silver Oak wines and champagnes and a 40-year-old port for dessert.
