FrontRunners: Hold the Pickles

  • Karyn J. Bilezerian

If the usual burger and fries have become too boring to bear, consider the most imaginative dish on the menu at Le Méridien at Beverly Hills hotel: the caviar burger.

A layered concoction of be-luga and blinis, the burger is served with a basket of pommes frites and a glass of vodka at the hotel’s new Café Noir Bar and Lounge.

The $150 lunch is one of several items featured on the café’s Petrossian caviar menu. Diners seeking a more traditional approach to enjoying this deli-cacy can choose from the seven grades of caviar that complete this special menu.

No matter what you order, you can supersize it with a glass of Cristal.
