(Relaxnews) – Because sometimes an airport sandwich just won’t do, ritzy flyers at Los Angeles Airport can now tuck into caviar-topped bellinis and wash it down with $1,000 bubbly as their pre-boarding snack.

French caviar house Petrossian opened a bar at the Tom Bradley International Terminal last week for passengers with gourmet taste buds and deep pockets.

Menu items include a caviar martini garnished with a caviar-stuffed olive, caviar deviled eggs, hand-sliced smoked salmon, a smoked trout platter and caviar flatbread, reports The Los Angeles Times.

For those who absolutely can’t tolerate plane food and anticipate fierce midnight caviar cravings, meanwhile, Petrossian also offers carry-on picnic packs that run between $205 to $1,582 which can be consumed in-flight.

According to the Times, the most expensive “Caviar in the Air” package includes top-shelf Tsar Imperial Kaluga caviar, creme fraiche, toast points, and smoked salmon in an insulated bag.

Petrossian follows on the heels of another Parisian caviar purveyor En-K de Caviar, which debuted a collection of small, portable caviar tins pitched as the gourmet snack for in-flight and on-the-go consumption in 2011. The tins contain 15 g of Osetra caviar — one of the most expensive on the market — and also come with a small serving spoon.
