 In a city congested with french cuisine, the Petrossian offers a menu that cannot be found elsewhere in New York.

Chef Richard Farnabe has mastered the art of complimenting untraditional flavors to create a harmony of taste. I find myself craving caviar marshmallow as I write this; a sentence I never thought I would form. Everyone from the Kardashians to Martha Stewart is a fan of Petrossian Caviar. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity to review their new menu.

I typically write about dating & style, and while I can’t compare this foie gras chocolate experience to one I’ve had before– I can tell you my date loved me more after indulging in it. The first course was a masterful king crab mousse that stood well on it’s own, but was even better spread on a croissant.

Nothing was short of excellent. However, it was the parmesan wrapped in spaghetti topped with caviar that changed my boyfriend Ben’s life forever. The crisp White Oak sauvignon blanc paired made each bite taste like the first.
