NYC Steakhouse Served Up Thanksgiving Dinner for $9,000
Thanksgiving has come and gone and no matter how fancy that turkey you ate was, it's a good bet that it didn't set you back nearly ten grand. However, one NYC restaurant spent the holiday catering to the mega-rich, which is just what the pilgrims intended.
NYC's Old Homestead Steakhouse offered up a Thanksgiving dinner that clocked in at at a massive $8,725 per person. How many quick-bake biscuits does that amount of dough buy you nowadays? Well, none. But it does buy you an organic turkey stuffed with ground Wagyu filet mignon, a squab stuffed with foie gras that has been soaked in Courvoisier L’Esprit cognac, gravy made from Chateau Mouton Rothschild wine and mashed potatoes made with Swedish moose milk and topped with Swedish moose cheese. However, the potatoes themselves were not sourced from Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, so money can't exactly buy you everything.
Meal patrons also received choice seats to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, a gift certificate to Bloomingdales and complimentary dance lessons. Those last two don't make any sense but, hey, people expect their money's worth.
