Petrossian West Hollywood Launches a Custom, Caviar-Tasting Dinner Menu

The new menu will change monthly and pairs caviar with delicacies like wagyu and homemade fettuccini…

Petrossian Restaurant & Boutique brings the beauty of variety and power of choice to diners with a new, monthly, Joie au Choix dinner menu that offers four choices for each course, allowing for countless combinations of appetizer, first, second and main course and dessert that can also be ordered à la carte. Meaning “the joy of choice,” the menu, created by Executive Chef Giselle Wellman, is meant to give guests the freedom to build their own tasting menu and sample new dishes – twenty in all – every month.

Chef Wellman will craft another set of twenty dishes – many using signature Petrossian items such as Tsar Cut Smoked Salmon, Transmontanous Caviar and Red King Crab Legs (available for purchase in the boutique) – each month, giving diners multiple new ways to experience Petrossian all year long.

The Joie au Choix menu is priced at $125.00 for five courses, including coffee and tea service; $175 with wine pairings.
