Petra Caviar Platter

Taste of Paris on Robertson Boulevard

Located at 321 N. Robertson Boulevard at Beverly Hills, Petrossian is a hidden jewel just a few blocks from Beverly Hills, featuring a beautifully appointed restaurant and gourmet food and beverage boutique. On warm days they offer a charming outdoor food service.

Petra Caviar Egg & Champagne

It’s difficult not to stop and admire the beautiful gift boxes filled with champagne, caviar and specialty items like the Petrossian picnic basket that would be perfect for a night at the Hollywood Bowl. The entrance area offers tables for lunch and dinner with a view of Robertson Boulevard. Beyond this room is a private dining room that is a quiet and in the evening becomes an elegant dining room where guests may enjoy the best in Petrossian European inspired recipes.

Petrosian Chef

At dinner their signature appetizers of Egg Royal or Blini with Caviar are as delicious as they are appealing to the eye. Entrees include a milieu of colorful and creatively plated caviar and smoked fish specialties that are paired with fine wines from the Petrossian cellars. The chef’s delicate preparation and presentation is commendable. The borsht, one of my favorites, is served in a contemporary fashion, but retains the rich traditional flavors. Chef Giselle Wellman has been at the helm in West Hollywood for over three years and has brought her innovative talent to the table.

Petrosian Outside View

Wines to enjoy with meals feature selections that include a Louis Roederer Crystal 2005 for$240.00, a Chateau Cailou Sauterne 2005 for $40.00 and a Domain Brochard Sancerre 2011 for $21.00 per bottle. An assortment of fine bottled water is also offered to patrons with dinner. Their desserts are also spectacular.

Petrosin Picnic N Park Basket

The Petrossian’s, two Armenian brothers, Melkoum and Mouchegh Petrossian first introduced Paris to the magic of caviar in the 1920’s and, in doing so, founded the company that today is the premier buyer and importer of Russian caviar worldwide. Their first attempts to create an awareness of caviar in Paris in the 20s were assisted by Cesar Ritz, the great impresario of the European hotel trade. His initial reluctance to offer caviar in his prestigious establishment at the Place Vendôme was quickly overcome as caviar caught on and assumed its own very special niche in the world of gastronomy.

Petrosin Roederer Champ

Born on the Iranian side of the Caspian Sea and raised on the Russian side, the two Petrossian brothers emigrated to France to continue their studies of medicine and law which had been interrupted by the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917. For more than eighty years, the Petrossian family has continued to develop this market, maintaining a rare and privileged relationship with the Russian fisheries. Even today, the family personally choose, on site, the very best of the fresh, high quality caviar produced in Russia during each catch.
