LAX’s luxurious revamped Tom Bradley International Terminal has a haute new addition.
Petrossian, the world-renowned caviar house, opened a gourmet caviar and champagne bar at the terminal last week.
The airport outpost is the second Los Angeles location for the 93-year old family-owned caviar house, and the fourth in the United States.
What you’ll find on offer include 20 vodkas and top shelf champagne and edibles including Petit Petrossian, 12 g 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.
Instead of the typically bland pre-boarding fare, Petrossian offers a “caviar in the air” picnic pack, which includes a choice of caviar—such as Tsar Imperial Ossetra—blinis and crème fraîche in an insulated carry-on Petrossian pouch.
Culinary delights such as 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 all also available for retail.
