Petrossian is the perfect place for a late lunch/early dinner.  Given that we had a 30% off coupon on our entire bill from Blackboard Eats, it was a no brainer that we would go to Petrossian. Basically, I will let the photos tell the story.

As an aside Blackboard Eats is a great deal. It doesn’t cost a thing to join, the restaurants represented are good and they actually do honor the coupon.

BYO Champagne

Blinis, caviar, trout roe, salmon roe – lovely beginning

Smoked salmon pizzette, creme fraiche, red onion, Transmontanus caviar – the pizzette was similar to a crunchy cracker-like flatbread. This was a huge portion and made for an excellent lunch the next day.

Foie Gras salad, haricots verts, toasted walnut, black truffle vinaigrette – John forgot to take a picture. This unfortunately was a miss. The walnuts were missing in action, the foie gras was relatively small given the large portion of haricot verts and the lovely smears of black truffle vinaigrette were forgotten.

The foie gras salad from another Petrossian meal – just perfect.

BYO Champagne

Shrimp papillotte, passion fruit, chili ginger sauce – excellent

Napoleon tartare, hand sliced steak tartare with a layer of caviar – another winner

A lovely late lunch/early dinner.

    Sinosoul – the shrimp papillote is a “take” on a very similar dish made famous by Robuchon at his Atelier in Paris.
