When we think of caviar, we think of dainty ivory spoons, super-expensive tiny tins, and overpriced, opulent excess. We don’t necessarily associate it with flying the friendly skies.
One restaurant is setting out to change that, though. Petrossian, the upscale caviar-centric restaurant with outposts in Los Angeles and New York, will be opening the Petrossian Caviar Bar in LAX in the spring of 2013.
The final details are still being worked out, but the caviar bar will be opening in the Tom Bradley International Terminal, which has been undergoing a $4 billion renovation. "Signature dishes and quick bites" will be on offer, according to a press release, along with an "intimate boutique" meant to "capture the spirit of the Southern California metropolitan city and transport its essence to final destinations."
Petrossian has been around since the 1920s, and its boutiques and restaurants are established by this point as the final word in fish roe-laden elegance. Whether it can capture the attention of harried international travelers remains to be seen, however.
