For over 20 years, the impeccable Caviar Russe has allowed New Yorkers the chance to experience a true delicacy the right way. With decades of experience with this unique cuisine, this is truly the best place to enjoy caviar in NYC.
With an equal emphasis on incredible dining, luxe atmosphere, and of course, the caviar itself, the experience at Caviar Russe is like no other. A recipient of a Michelin star for the past seven years, Caviar Russe offers a seasonal menu incorporating only the best ingredients. Although this hotspot is best known for its caviar, the menu includes a range of delicious offerings, with a special emphasis on seafood dishes. Standouts include a thoughtful bluefin tuna dish accented with asparagus and uni, as well as a delicate combination of ricotta gnudi and scallops.
This year an exciting addition to the acclaimed Caviar Russe restaurant is an expansion to the bar downstairs. A less formal experience (but no less incredible!) The Bar At Caviar Russe has been transformed into a luxe space, with 14 comfortable chairs at a large white marble counter, as well as 28 others in a lounge space. The Bar opens at noon daily and offers small bites and cocktails. Incredible wines, champagnes, and vodkas are just scratching the surface of this incredible bar menu, there is truly something for everyone. Stop by for unbeatable raw bar specialties, with options like bao buns with eel and foie gras, mini lobster rolls, and an incredible chirashi bowl topped with caviar, this will be a meal like no other.
Whether you’re in the mood for a formal dining experience to impress or a light bite that doesn’t sacrifice quality, Caviar Russe is unmatched. All of the company’s impeccable caviar is farm-raised in Northern Germany, and you can taste it in every bite. If you are unable to stop by and experience the incredible restaurant in person, Caviar Russe offers an array of deliverables that will allow you to experience true luxury in the comfort of your home. Treat yourself to an order of delicious caviar and all its pairings for a particularly special Sunday brunch, or gift someone special to a true delicacy. Experiencing Caviar Russe in any form is a true treat, and this spot is a definite must on your New York City itinerary.
