Photography: The Savoy

Get your caviar fix at The Savoy this month as Petrossian launches its cafe and pop-up store at the legendary London hotel.

Petrossian has taken over The Thames Lobby at The Savoy with an art-deco-inspired store and cafe that channels a taste of its heritage. Armenian caviar merchants Melkoum and Mouchegh Petrossian first introduced caviar to Paris in 1920, and from this era, its cafe and store interiors at The Savoy emerge. Think black-and-white checkerboard flooring, curving glass store windows, black wood panelling and classic circular cafe tables draped with crisp white tablecloths.

Smoked salmon, tarama and caviar are on the menu – five types ranging from Baeri Baïka Tsar Impérial Caviar (£100 for 30g) to Beluga Tsar Impérial Caviar (£1500 for 125g). Side accompaniments include new potatoes, blinis and toast, an impressive champagne and wine list – plus Petrossian’s own vodka.

The cafe and store are open from Tuesday to Saturday from 11.30 am to 7.30 pm and Sunday from 12 – 5 pm.
