A caviar vending machine has opened in California for the deep-pocketed who prefer to indulge their snack cravings with caviar and blinis rather than candy bars. Beverly Hills Caviar has set up the luxury snack food vending machine at the Burbank Town Center Mall, which also dispenses all the accoutrements one needs for a gold-gilded, midnight snack.
Think caviar, truffles, escargot, blinis, bottarga (fish egg sacks), oils, Mother of Pearl plates and spoons, gift boxes and gourmet salts.
It’s been a big week for caviar. Celebrity chef Eric Ripert of what’s been described as the best seafood restaurant in New York Le Bernardin, also launched his own line of luxury caviar. An 8-oz tin of Eric Ripert Imperial Select Caviar is yours for $1,050.
