Best Place to Eat Caviar at Happy Hour Los Angeles 2013 

Petrossian West Hollywood

For those who have Champagne tastes but a beer budget, Petrossian West Hollywood's $49 weekday happy hour is a relatively affordable way to indulge in the ultimate briny delicacy of the caviar for which the small West Hollywood café and boutique is known. Like wine, there are different varieties, and this is a fantastic place to expand your palate. Flavors veer from slightly salty seawater to the brown-butter finish of pricey Osetra. At happy hour, it's farm-raised American sturgeon (nutty Transmontanus) that's paired with either two glasses of Champagne or two vodka flutes. Or leave all the effort to executive chef Giselle Wellman, whose caviar flatbread is layered with creme fraiche, onions, eggs, capers, chives and caviar. Wellman recommends the caviar-tini: a dirty vodka martini that's finished with a caviar-stuffed olive, cocktail onion and a caviar cube, all on a stick. Decadent? It's just L.A.'s version of a budget-minded happy hour. 321 N. Robertson Blvd., W. Hlywd.; (310) 271-6300. petrossian.com. —Kathy A. McDonald
