Sent to us from Caviar Russe, this dish is sure to impress. With risotto infused with white wine, sea urchin puree, and the added taste of decadent smoked caviar, it will be like eating at a five-star restaurant of your own making.
Back in October, Caviar Russe (an upscale caviar boutique and restaurant in New York) began a brand new seven-course Caviar Tasting Menu that features six different varieties of imported caviar. Each course is paired with at least ten grams of caviar, which is hand selected by Executive Chef Christopher Agnew. At $395 a person, the meal starts with caviar service, including the collection of Caviar Russe's Malossol caviars, and for an extra $225 per person you can expect champagne pairings.
