Sporting events always mean more meat is consumed. But one New York restaurant took it to a whole new level! So we ask you this – How Much Meat Did you Eat While Watching The Super Bowl?
American adults will spend an average of around $81 on food for Super Bowl Sunday. But nachos, chicken wings and burgers didn’t cut it for this trendy New York restaurant.
The Old Homestead Steakhouse in the Meatpackers district of New York, a real hangout for celebrities, was apparently offering a Super Bowl special for $53,000! Called the Beef and Bling package, the steakhouse claimed this to be the highest cost meal for one single game ever.
Marc Sherry, the co-owner said “This is the biggest sporting event of the year, so I created something to match the big game hype”.
So what did you get for this bargain price we ask?
The package included a 53lb imported Japanese Wagyu roast, so high-end that it is only available at exclusive auctions in Japan. One of these will typically go for an average of $475 per pound. Sourced from hand-massaged cows, who have been fed organic grains and beer, meant to stimulate their appetite. Also included were 12 x $750 bottles of Cristal champagne, and other snacks like pizza, chicken and normal meat snacks etc.
To make up the real value of the “deal” however, is a pear shaped 10.28 carat teardrop diamond necklace! A consolation prize if you really don’t want to watch the Super Bowl perhaps?
