Attention travelers with layovers at LAX, which is guaranteed this time of year, you can now idle away the hours sipping Champagne or vodka and eating caviar at the posh new Petrossian, at the Bradley Terminal.
The upscale caviar house also pours more than 20 vodka varieties to sip with such caviar offerings as Petit Petrossian, 12 grams of Transmontanus Caviar served with classic accoutrements and blini; the Cutting Board, which includes cured meats, cheeses, mustard, quince jam, house-made pickled vegetables, and honeycomb; the Smoked Fish Platter of sturgeon, halibut, salmon carpaccio, sardines rillettes, whitefish salad, and trout dip served with crème fraîchè, lemon, caperberries, and toast points; Caviar Flatbread topped with crème fraîche, chives, red onion, capers, and chopped egg; or the Roe Sampler of pike, trout and salmon roe served with toast, blinis, and crème fraîche.
The Petrossian location at LAX marks the second Los Angeles location for the 93-year old family-owned caviar house, and the fourth in the United States. “We are thrilled to open our newest boutique and café at Los Angeles International Airport’s Tom Bradley International Terminal,” says Petrossian CFO Arnaud Thieffry. “Petrossian has stood for gourmet luxury since the company was established in 1920, and we are delighted to bring elegance and sophistication back to air travel.”
Take some with you
You can also pick up a caviar in the air picnic pack to enjoy on your flight that comes with a choice of caviar—such as Tsar Imperial Ossetra—blinis and crème fraîche presented in an insulated carry-on Petrossian pouch. Or buy some for gifts for friends or relatives. There’s lots of gift packs to choose from such as a selection of Parisian-smoked salmon, smoked sturgeon, and smoked scallops; charcuterie such as Berkshire Pork Truffle Salami, Duck Salami, and French Basque-style Sausage; and French candies like Pate de Fruits, Calissons de Provence, Cognac Pearls, and Chocolate with Orange Nougat Bar are available for onsite shopping.
