$45,000 Thanksgiving Dinner Includes an Engagement Ring

The 2 ct. diamond ring was designed by a family friend in the Diamond District

The Old Homestead Steakhouse in New York City is offering what is probably the most expensive Thanksgiving in town: A $45,000, seven-course feast that is topped off with a diamond engagement ring.

“Thanksgiving weekend kicks off the proposal season that runs until Valentine’s Day,” said Marc Sherry, co-owner of the restaurant with his brother Greg.

“Too many guys wing it on Thanksgiving when it comes to popping the question,” he said. “They could use a little creativity, so we’re planning everything from soup to nuts—and the engagement ring, too. Why wait until Valentine’s Day. She’ll never expect it on Thanksgiving.”

The 2 ct. diamond ring will be nestled in the stuffing inside the turkey.

“Imagine the moment when she takes a forkful of Thanksgiving stuffing and sees the ring,” said Greg Sherry.

The ring was designed by a family friend who is a jeweler in the Diamond District.

The promo package, which features a seven-course dinner for eight people, features $1,600 per ounce caviar, a $4,900 bottle of bourbon, tickets to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a $7,500 Black Friday shopping spree at Bergdorf Goodman, two nights at the Waldorf Astoria, a limousine escort, and a videographer to record the proposal.

A spokesperson for the restaurant said they are meeting with two potential proposers this weekend. 

In 2014, the restaurant had a $35,000 package—not including a diamond ring—that three parties purchased.
