This Thanksgiving, swap carrots for carats with a lavish, seven-course feast for eight at Old Homestead Steakhouse, topping its own dinner from last year which clocked in at a mere $35,000. The Meatpacking clubhouse—best known for its prized Wagyu running $250 per pound and ranking among some of the priciest plates in NYC—will serve that cut of meat as just one small part of a $45,000 Turkey Day spread offered for 11 weeks from November 26th through Valentine's Day next year.

Meant to coincide with the kick-off of marriage proposal season, the menu includes a roasted free-range, organically-raised turkey nestling a stuffing made from the wallet-busting Japanese beef, $46-per-loaf sourdough bread and $49-per-pound foie gras. But don't eat too quickly—inside that stuffing is a shiny emerald-cut diamond engagement ring.
Post-proposal, continue the meal with a gravy infused with Pappy Van Winkle bourbon ($4,900 per bottle), a Grand Marnier–splashed cranberry-orange relish and whipped sweet potatoes topped with Royal Ossetra 000 caviar ($1,600 per ounce). A side of macaroni and cheese is made with $300-per-pound Swedish Moose House fromage, butternut squash gets a hit of winter black truffles, and house-made pumpkin ice cream is shot with rum-infused eggnog sauce and crowned with 24-carat gold flakes.
In addition to the food (and ring), the primo price tag comes with two tickets to grandstand seats at the Macy's Thanksgiving parade, a $7,500 Black Friday shopping free at Bergdorf, a two-night stay at the Waldorf Astoria, door-to-door limousine service and Turkey Trot dance lessons.
