Caviar at Happy Hour? Only at Petrossian (West Hollywood, CA)

There are plenty of happy hours in Los Angeles, but where would you find caviar on the happy hour menu? Well, at Petrossian - the renowned caviar purveyor - of course you would. For happy hour drinks you can get either the caviar cocktail or vodka at a discounted price, or $6 wines.

Let's talk about the food! Last year I put Petrossian's lobster roll as one of the best bites I had that year. The lobster roll was topped with sea urchin and caviar!

For happy hour, you can get a mini version:
Mini Lobster Roll, topped with Sea Urchin, Caviar, Fennel, Daikon, Chives, Parsley, Brioche Roll, Lemongrass & Garlic Aioli, French Fries ($15)

Caviar Lobster Roll
I went for a media preview so they had cut up the mini lobster roll into smaller pieces for us to taste. It's just as good as I remembered and made me want to come back in for a full size!

Other offerings include Tarte Aux Pommes de Terre (Potato Tart, Crème Fraiche, 20g Transmontanus Caviar - $24)
The crispy potato tarts remind me of latkes - but topped with caviar makes it that much better, of course.

 If you wish for something more filling, you can get the Caviar Burger Slider (Papierusse, Butter Lettuce, Fried Egg, Caviar Aioli, French Fries - $15).

The papierusse is a sheet sous vide caviar produced by Petrossian, which makes it less messy to add caviar to something like burgers. Thanks to the size of the slider, you get that much more runny yolk per burger, as well!

If you don't want caviar, there are Fried Zucchini Blooms with Olivade Niçoise Olives, Fromage Blanc, Capers ($8)
I also recommend the Jicama Smoked Trout Tacos with Tequila Infused Trout Roe, Cucumber Ginger salsa, Grapefruit ($10, 2 tacos per order)
I liked biting into the crisp, cool jimaca shells, which complements the delicate trout roe quite well.

Head over to the sweets section and try their white chocolate caviar macarons!
This is a unique take on that sweet and savory combination that has been proven popular with things like chocolate bacon or salted caramel.

Petrossian's happy hour menu is available Monday-Friday from 4-7pm.



Have you ever tried any of the happy hour restaurant newport beach? I am trying to find some good southern California restaurants.
