When it comes to luxe eats, I have enjoyed quite a few of the World’s most expensive. But this $76, 000 Thanksgiving Day dinner – by far takes the Turkey!
My first rendezvous with luxe eats was as a video producer for Harper’s BAZAAR. I filmed a live demo of the making of the $1000 Golden Opulence Sundae at Serendipity. There’s even a $2000 – 24K Pizza, but they got nothing on Old Homestead’s – $76, 000 Thanksgiving Day Dinner.

Old Homestead has become the master of excess when it comes to the most expensive food – this isn’t the NYC steakhouse’s first romp with luxe eats. In 2016, Old Homestead was charging $50k for Thanksgiving Day Dinner according to Refinery 29. Fast forward to 2017; Old Homestead has outdone themselves with this $76,000 Thanksgiving Dinner.
At $76,000, this is the world’s most expensive Thanksgiving experience from CNBC.

• Stuffing — a mix of $54-per-pound foie gras, Wagyu beef and $46 per loaf sourdough

Sure to create memories and eat all of the best ingredients of the world, I am looking forward to Old Homestead’s Luxurious 2018 Thanksgiving Dinner!
