Petrossian Brings the Luxury of Caviar

Designed by Ion Oroveanu, Petrossian seats just 60 guests within an Art Deco setting of polished marble, lustrous wood, Lalique sconces, a Lanvin chandelier, and superb bronze sculptures from the 1930s. Opened in 1984, the restaurant is housed in Alwyn Court, a historic 1909 apartment building; next door is Petrossian’s food boutique, with one side showcasing its caviar, smoked salmon, foie gras, tea, and preserves, and the other its pastries and desserts. The boutique also sells silver salt and pepper shakers and mother-of-pearl spoons, requisite for eating caviar in its purest form. A few steps up to the rear is a small café.(article by Gotham Magazine
