WHY: For nearly ninety years, Petrossian caviar has stood for excellence. This legacy of quality began when two brothers, Melkoum and Mouchegh Petrossian, moved to France and distributed caviar from the sturgeons of the bountiful Caspian Sea. And it continues today, as Petrossian became the first major distributor to work with sturgeon farms, providing gourmet sustainable options with a taste that holds a place on the mantle alongside beluga, sevruga and ossetra caviars. 701 Restaurant is celebrating the season showcasing the delicacy as the restaurant has a long history of featuring caviar since its opening in December 1990.
