Imagine savoring the finest caviar with its exquisite subtle bursts in your mouth, as you intermittently sip on the richest of Champagne, all while basking in an imperial décor. Sounds like a gastronomical dream? Well not anymore! Renowned Champagne house, Dom Perignon and Belmond Grand Hotel, Europe are all set to together offer a special caviar pairing experience at St. Petersburg’s sole caviar dine, The Caviar Bar & Restaurant.
Alexander Dmitriev, the city’s only vodka sommelier joined hands with Dom Perignon’s Russain Ambassador, Alexey Mitrofanov to concoct the finest contrasts and matches of champagne and caviar. The menu boasts of an impressive spread of 15 delectable varieties of caviar along with 12 selected Dom Perignon labels which include a fine collection of Blanc and Rose as well as the P2 vintage 1998, the best of the vintage lot. Up for grabs is also the unmissable signature dish of the house, “Egg in Egg”, a truffle infused egg scramble which is topped with oscietra and salmon caviar. Apart for the wide spread of Champagne and caviar, the selection also includes 35 top varieties of vodka, 15 distillates as well as a few of Dmitriev’s homegrown liquors.
What’s more you ask? To compliment this unique caviar pairing experience, the Caviar Bar & Restaurant has done up a central table in distinctive 19th century style, designed by Dior’s ex-stylist, Per Spook. The table perfectly complements the bar’s grand interiors and is large enough to accommodate up to 12 people at once. You can enjoy this culinary treat at £49 per glass and £325 per bottle for Dom Perignon’s 2006 vintage collection and at around £49 for three egg shells for the house’s signature dish. With Belmond’s classic back drop, this champagne and caviar duo is bound to set you on a gastronomical trance!
