It’s that time of the year, when you and your family will endure each other for one of the best and largest meals of the year. Unbutton your pants, its Thanksgiving time. Old Homestead has created a meal that will make your jaw drop. When you hear the price, your jaw will drop even further. Yes, it does actually cost $181,000.
The showstopper for this meal is of course, the free-range $145 per pound turkeys. The two turkeys are gold-painted, gold-crusted, and gold-flaked. The meal has $1,200-per-pound Spanish bacon atop candied sweet potatoes. These are paired with $300 per-pound imported white cheddar cheese from a British farm. Another super exciting component is the gravy, which is infused with a $3,650 bottle of Louis XIII cognac, as is the cranberry sauce (with $250 per-dozen Japanese strawberries) with a Taylor Fladgate 40-year tawny port reduction.
Another quaint but exciting feature is the seafood on this platter of goodness. It includes Alaskan king crab, Maine lobster, Otoro tuna, and golden caviar from the Caspian Sea that costs more than $1,600 an ounce.
If you’re still not convinced that this meal could cost so much, there are a bunch of non-edible amenities that will get your mouth watering. These include a $50,000 SeaDream Yacht Club Cruise, but also a $20,000 Black Friday shopping spree and four tickets to Super Bowl LIV with first-class airfare and a stay at The Setai, Miami Beach. The restaurant is offering three packages, each of which allows up to 12 guests.
