Petrossian’s Caviar 201 class would make a great gift as well:
Caviar 201 takes place from 7:30-8:30 p.m. the last Thursday and Friday of each month. For $75 guests may sample at least 5 select specialty caviars paired with Champagne and vodka. What makes Caviar 201 so unique is this is an opportunity to try Petrossian’s top caviars without having to purchase each one individually. Additional small plates created by Chef Giselle Wellman and showcasing caviar are also served.
Petrossian offers guests the opportunity to expand their caviar education with Caviar 201, offered the last Thursday of each month beginning September 29, 2011 for $75. Each class will feature a lineup of even more of Petrossian’s specialty caviars paired with Champagne and Vodka. Executive Chef Giselle Wellman will prepare caviar-centric appetizers to enjoy as well. Caviar 101 will still be offered the first Thursday and Friday of each month for $35 and includes a selection of caviars, a flute of Champagne or Vodka, and appetizers. In both classes participants learn about Petrossian caviar in a relaxed and casual setting. Each class gives diners a chance to taste and compare a wide range of caviars.
Petrossian Boutique & Restaurant is located among the city’s most fashionable stores on Robertson Blvd. in West Hollywood. Petrossian was founded by brothers Melkoum and Mouchegh Petrossian in the 1920’s, and is known as the established leader in the caviar business. Now, grandson Alexandre Petrossian is evolving the family business by offering guests more affordable ways to enjoy the signature Petrossian experience. The charming restaurant in West Hollywood is a casually elegant destination for lunch, dinner, happy hour, and weekend brunch featuring a selection of French-inspired California cuisine artfully prepared by Executive Chef Giselle Wellman. A boutique area adjacent to the dining room offers guests a way to continue the experience at home and is an ideal shopping destination for host or hostess gifts and customized epicurean gift baskets including tastes of Caviar, Smoked Salmon, Foie Gras, and Handmade Chocolates.
