Each caviar varies in some way: size, color, style, country of origin; and of course, taste. Malossol means little salt. Sturgeon may come from almost anywhere, and the caviar will be much the same. The processing, however, will vary with the producer. Each portion of one ounce serves one to two persons. You may order your caviar with six of our own condiments or the traditional accompaniments. Both are served with fresh toasted brioche. The classic parings for caviar are fine quality iced Champagnes and icy-cold vodkas. Yukon Gold Potato Blinis (six) - $6.90
