Petrossian New York’s Exquisite Bar (Below)

petrossian bar

It was in the 1920’s that two Armenian brothers–Melkoum and Mouchegh Petrossian–first introduced Paris to the magic of caviar and, in doing so, founded the company that today is the premier buyer and importer of Russian caviar worldwide.

During the "années folles", known as the “Roaring 20s” in the United States, Paris welcomed exiled Russian princes, intellectuals and aristocrats with open arms, and Parisians quickly embraced all things Russian, especially the arts, ballet, the choreography of Diaghilev, and the music of Igor Stravinsky. Nonetheless, there was one thing missing from the Russian expatriates’ lives: caviar. The French had yet to be introduced to this rare delicacy, a situation that the Petrossian brothers immediately set out to remedy.

The Spacious Main Dining Room  (Above)

Founded in 1984, New York’s Petrossian restaurant is housed in the historic Alwyn Court Building on Manhattan’s West Side, one block from Carnegie Hall and four blocks from Lincoln Center. Owned by the Petrossians, it serves a French-influenced contemporary menu that features the caviar, smoked fish, and foie gras delicacies for which Petrossian is known throughout the world. Lunch, dinner, and brunch can be enjoyed at either the art deco style mirrored bar or in the dining room. Designed by Ion Oroveanu, the restaurant features Lalique crystal wall sconces, bronze sculptures from the 1930’s, etched Erté mirrors, Limoges china, Lanvin chandelier and pink Finnish granite, all harmonizing to create a visual ambiance that can be savored equally with the unsurpassed gourmet experience.

Always New York’s most Parisian restaurant, Petrossian is forever youthful with a tempered balance of its past and a clear knowledge of its future. Soft sounds of Billie Holiday and Ella play in the background and caress the senses as subtle service, beautifully orchestrated by maître d’hôtel Rene Scarzeroa, pampers without intrusion.

Top of the line in the legendary caviar department, is the Classic Three Caviar Presentation which includes 20g each of Royal Ossetra, which is delectably fresh and fruity, Ossetra ranges in color from light brown to dark brown, its firm grain is pleasing and juicy, with a distinctive nutty taste that inspires fierce loyalties. This Ossetra captures the eggs at their absolute peak of size, flavor, color and texture, when the sturgeon are at their most mature. Truly sublime; Royal Transmontanus Caviar, sustainable white sturgeon, native to California, produces this elegant caviar that evokes the taste of the finest Ossetra, with a nutty flavor that’s at once smooth and robust and Special Reserve Alverta President: Sustainable from mature, white sturgeon in the clear, cold waters of northern California, its smallish size bead has a nutty, buttery flavor. Purists insist on buttered toast only, but don’t miss the beautiful presentation of featherweight blini (Russian pancakes), crème fraiche, chopped egg whites, yolk and onion .

But  Petrossian has a serious kitchen and Chef: German Calle has a deft hand. Recommended appetizers include a remarkable  Cold Lobster and Artichoke Salad with Fava Beans, Caviar Royal Transmontanus and a delicate Lobster Vinaigrette. Seared Hudson Valley Foie Gras with Apricot – Green Apple Tatin, and Spiced Hazelnuts is not only elegant but as good as it reads. Petrossian’s “Premiere” smoked salmon is buttery and outstanding.

For entrée stars, look no further than, sumptuous Seared Diver Scallops with Sweet English Peas, Baby Fennel, Crispy Turnips, Morel Mushrooms, Round Carrots, Bottarga in a
Parmesan Nage. Seared Chilean Sea Bass and Tarama, Fennel Purée, Steamed Spinach, White Asparagus  in Cardamom Carrot Sauce is also lovely and the signature Pan Roasted West Coast Sturgeon, Ratte Potatoes, Tender Vegetable Succotash, in a Caviar Beurre Blanc is still a standout. Dover Sole Meuniere with Braised Asparagus, Steamed, Dilled Potatoes, in a dressing of Capers, Lime, and Hazelnuts is one of the best seafood creations I’ve had this year, 

If seafood is not your thing, you’ll love Pan Roasted Long Island Duck, Turnips Variation, Poached Asian Pear, Compressed Duck Leg, Coco Bean Purée cinnamon Duck Reduction or a beautifully tender Roasted New Zealand Lamb Rack. There is also a fine Petite Filet Mignon, Sauteed Wild Mushrooms, Truffle Scented Fingerling Potatoes, Asparagus, in Cabernet Sauce

All desserts, are stylish and delicious. Our favorite was The best crème brulée imaginable with a velvety custard and parchment crust. The vanilla  flavor was intense, yet not intrusive. Granny Smith Apple Tart was light and delicious. The vodka and Champagne by the glass selection is terrific and comprehensive; the wine list has loads of good bottles priced affordably. The Prix fixe dinner (currently $48) is Manhattan’s best buy in any luxury restaurant. Petrossian, 182 West 58th Street, is one of NY’s five best restaurants
