Caviar tasting at Petrossian

BY Meatpacking BIDPUBLISHED 06.11.2024

Discover the world’s finest caviar right on West 13th Street at Petrossian. We chatted all things caviar with Inés Rodriguez.

Meatpacking District (MTPK): Tell us about yourself!

Inés Rodriguez (IR): My name is Inés Rodriguez, the Boutique Manager at Petrossian Caviar NYC. I consider myself a food enthusiast at heart, and I really love representing one of the best caviar brands in the world. Before Petrossian, I spent over 20 years working in the retail industry in NYC and Florida.

MTPK: What do you love about your job and working in Meatpacking?

IR: I love the people I work with, and I love selling such high-quality products that I use in my own kitchen almost every day. Interacting with our truly amazing clients from NYC and all over the world is a daily pleasure. Since relocating to the Meatpacking District, the boutique feels infused with new energy, and I love that. There seems to be something happening outside every weekend, especially during warmer weather, and it’s always exciting to be in the neighborhood.

MTPK: How did you get started in this line of work?

IR: Retail has always been my passion. I started off in fashion and eventually worked with several luxury brands. A few years ago, I was looking to pivot into a new industry, and I connected on LinkedIn with one of the leaders at Petrossian, who invited me to interview. And the rest is history.

MTPK: If Meatpacking was a caviar, what caviar would the neighborhood be?

IR: Tsar Imperial Kaluga Huso Hybrid would be the caviar equivalent of the Meatpacking District, embodying an elegant and sophisticated essence that appeals to the adventurous spirit, much like the neighborhood itself.

MTPK: What are your top three caviar pairings?


  1. Blinis and crème fraîche

  2. Potato chips (Preferably unsalted)

  3. Champagne

MTPK: What’s a unique caviar pairing that not enough people participate in?

IR: I’m a sweet tooth. I don’t think caviar on dessert gets enough love, like the Petrossian Caviar Mille Crêpe collaboration with Lady M. It was a scrumptious cream-filled pastry topped with a subtle taste of caviar.

Petrossian Caviar is located at 419 West 13th Street.
