The Elegant Main Dining Room
By Nancy Walman
Award-winning website, Punchin-dot-com, features the Walman Report and reviews of restaurants, travel, wine and theater. Petrossian NY was founded in 1984. The restaurant, housed in the historic Alwyn Court Building, one block from Carnegie Hall and four blocks from Lincoln Center, serves a French-influenced contemporary menu that features the caviar, smoked fish, and foie gras delicacies for which Petrossian is famous, but also sports a superb kitchen. Lunch, dinner, & brunch can be enjoyed at either the art deco style mirrored bar or in the dining room. The décor features Lalique crystal wall sconces, bronze sculptures from the 1930′s, etched Erté mirrors and Limoges china.
The $35 Prix fixe dinner (served all evening through Labor-day) is one of Manhattan’s best buys in luxury dining. Recommended dishes include blini, airy puffs of heaven, which a waiter dabs with crème fraiche and then adds caviar. An assortment of Petrossian’s Zakouskis (a variety of hors d’oeuvres) is another choice starter, as is the silky smoked salmon. There is a remarkable lobster risotto and the cold salmon with dilled potato salad from the prix fixe is delicious. All desserts are marvelous. Russian cheesecake with dried fruits and candied brittle (a special) and the gianduja chocolate cake (for two) steal the show. Drink iced Petrossian vodka (very smooth) or one of the excellent Champagnes. Service is as good as it gets and Petrossian, 182 West 58th Street, is one of NY’s best “Fine Dining” restaurants and rates A Major on the Walman Report.

PETROSSIAN BOUTIQUE & CAFÉ is kicking off this fourth of July with an affordable summer picnic basket filled with Petrossian’s incomparable selection of delicacies wrapped and ready to go for $20.00.
Choose the Petrossian smoked salmon baguette alongside organic greens and a white wine vinaigrette or a ham, lettuce, and tomato Swiss cheese baguette with a homemade mayonnaise and tangy mustard sauce, both packed with an assortment of six homemade buttery shortbread cookies and a thirst quenching 250ml bottle of San Pellegrino — all wrapped air-tight in a reusable wire basket (think plants or other picnic forays) with utensils and a napkin on which to spread the spread.
Other selections are also available for the same price or design your own picnic basket. Snack on the caviar picnic basket for $20 dollars which offers homemade savory croutons, a 30g tin of American salmon roe, your choice of a freshly baked fruit tart or dark chocolate gateau, and a bottle of San Pellegrino.
These scrumptious summer picnic baskets will be offered through Labor Day and can be picked up at the Petrossian cafe and boutique, 911 Seventh Avenue between 57th and 58th Streets, located just half a block from the Petrossian restaurant. Call ahead at 212.245.2217 to make sure a basket is freshly packed for you and ready when you arrive, or come in and create your own basket with Nia, the boutique manager.
