Eating caviar in your pajamas is only an option at extremely casual fine-dining establishments, or with today’s side deal. For $45, you get the Caviar for Two gift box from The Little Pearl, an $87.50 value. You have the option to receive your order via overnight delivery (additional $7.50 for local delivery) or to pick it up from the Somerville location (Monday–Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Either method will net you fresh caviar inside a beautifully packaged box, making this a great Valentine’s gift for any significant other or sweet-smelling stranger.
Inside the box lies a sampling of different caviars and all the necessary accoutrements, such as a mother-of-pearl spoon and an info card. By using only high-quality American caviar, The Little Pearl offers a lightly buttery taste without being fishy or salty. Even novices to this luxurious specialty will enjoy the rich flavors encountered on the palatal journey through the box’s contents. Each one includes:
- 1 ounce American Sturgeon
- 2 ounces Yukon Gold Salmon
- 20 honey buckwheat blini
- 1.25 ounce crème fraîche
Caviar substitutions of equal or lesser value are allowed.
Seafood Choices Alliance profiled the Little Pearl’s Richard Brauman, and the store has been featured on Daily Candy, the Boston Globe, The Nibble, and more: > * Brauman’s American caviar is winning over chefs. Recently Michael LaScola of Nantucket’s American Seasons restaurant featured Little Pearl’s Rainbow Trout caviar on a menu he cooked at the James Beard House in New York…The way Brauman describes it, the big difference between American caviar and the others is the use of borox, a preservative banned in this country. It leaves the eggs tasting less salty and a little more sweet. Since American caviar has no preservatives, says Brauman, he thinks the taste is purer. – Susan Chaityn Lebovits, Boston Globe > * The caviar is very fresh, with a firm texture and mild taste—no saltiness or fishiness. You can taste the species character and terroir in each bite. Each jar is packed to order. – The Nibble > * The Little Pearl ensures the highest quality of caviar from start to finish- from farmers and fishermen using best management practices to the caliber of production managers and master salters. – Seafood Choices Alliance
