Today is National Caviar Day, so to celebrate in haute style, we have rounded up some of the must-try dishes at five restaurants in Boston you won’t want to miss. Here’s where you will want to indulge your love for caviar.

1 Neptune Oyster

Neptune Oyster
This North End favorite is best known for its buttery lobster roll that visitors line the restaurant to indulge in each summer, but we like to start off our experience with a sampling of their decadent appetizer. This buttermilk "johnnycake" comes complete with all of the indulgent toppings you can imagine - think honey butter, Boston smoked bluefish and, of course, Sturgeon caviar. Pair it up with a bottle of bubbly and this dish makes an even better dessert.

2 L'Espalier

L'Espalier's award-winning Chef Frank McClelland takes diners on a traveling caviar journey near the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Back Bay with offerings like American Paddlefish, Pacific Sturgeon, Oscietra Royal, Sevruga and the city's most exclusive offering - Caspian Sea Beluga (one ounce is $375). Keep an eye out for seasonal specialty dishes like the one shown here (Siberian caviar with apple, celery, creme fraiche and Yukon potatoes).

3 o ya

o ya
The restaurant with one of the most expensive tasting menus in Boston, o ya also offers sophisticated diners a taste of some of the best caviar creations. Take, for example, the bluefin tuna and smoked salmon tartare made even better when topped with Belgian ossetra caviar or the smoked local bluefish rainbow trout caviar spiced up with wasabi vinaigrette. If you prefer to indulge in a sampling on its own, try the Hokkaido sea urchin with Russian ossetra caviar, the perfect way to start off your dining experience here.

4 Oishii

There aren't too many restaurants where caviar samplings range from a cold appetizer to a hot soup, but at Oishii, they have taken caviar to a new level. Start off with the wowing presentation of the Toro tartare topped with Ossetra caviar and crispy shallots served in an ice block. Next up, move along to the Yuba menegi soup made with mountain caviar in a bonito broth at this South End haute spot before indulging in some uber fresh sushi, what Oishii is best known for.

5 Ostra

Ostra Boston
One of the best spots to find a good sampling of Belgian Osetra caviar with house made brioche and all of the classic accompaniments is at Ostra, the modern Mediterranean restaurant in the Theatre District. Here, you can take a culinary journey from Germany to Italy with a final destination of Israel. The German medium pearls are complex and rich, while the medium Italian sampling tastes of nutty cream. We prefer the Israeli version, a nutty and creamy version indulgence of both medium to large pearls. Keep the caviar love going with a taste of Faroe Island salmon tartare, which is smoked to order topped with lemon scallion, shallots and caviar.
