Petrossian restaurant is housed in the historic Alwyn Court Building on Manhattan's West Side. The French-influenced contemporary menu features caviar, smoked fish, and foie gras delicacies for which Petrossian is known throughout the world.
They happened to have a prix-fixe lunch menu so we decided to try that.
We loved the food and the service was fantastic (as well it should be) but we had a Pretty Woman moment when we walked in. I was wearing jeans and a t-shirt as was my cousin Sarah....when we walked in the host did the rudest thing - he looked us up and down. The worst part was he wasn't at all subtle about it. I nearly smacked him. I know the place is where the upper east side folks come to lunch but damn that was just unnecessary.
Loved the place but definitely not coming back
