Turkey Day, the Jewish Deli Way

Ben’s Kosher Deli is offering a Thanksgiving Feast for 10 (at all its locations) that clocks in at $229.90. The extravaganza includes whole roasted turkey, stuffing and gravy, cranberry-pineapple compote, cole slaw and a relish tray.

And Chompie’s, the “New York Style Deli-Restaurant and Bakery” owned by Arizona’s Borenstein family, will serve a straight-up Thanksgiving dinner of turkey breast, gravy, stuffing, cranberry relish, string beans, candied yams, dinner rolls and apple or pumpkin pie.

It’s an unbelievable $19/person.
