Caviar Kaspia is your favorite celebrity’s favorite restaurant. Located in the eighth arrondissement of Paris, on the Place de la Madeleine, for almost a hundred years, famous personalities have succumbed to the elegance of the restaurant and its famous first-class caviar.
Opened in 1927 by Russian immigrant Arcady Fixon, it joined Paris at the height of the Roaring Twenties and its decadence. Since then, the gourmet restaurant has continued to embody the excess and prosperity that prevailed when it opened, and can count Jay-Z and Beyonce, Raf Simons, Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano and Tom Ford, among others. like his patrons.
The restaurant’s distinctive blue tablecloths and a display case bearing the seal of Nicholas II set the scene for many conversations about why you’d kill to be a fly on the wall – a role it plays most often during fashion week.
The Haussmann-style building spends the week packed wall-to-wall with the upper echelons of industry. On any day of fashion week, you might find A$AP Rocky at a dinner party hosted by Dior, Kanye West partying in a diamond-encrusted Jacob & Co. chain, or Rihanna being interviewed for a profile. in Vogue. Last season, Off-White™ launched a two-week space takeover, in honor of what the brand called Virgil Abloh’s favorite spot.
Remaining a family business, its old-fashioned opulence has remained and is at the heart of its charm. Fixon’s vision of creating an upscale institution serving up delights of yesteryear has remained alive. However, that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to grow and spread awareness of his best caviar – and the best way to eat it.
It’s safe to say that almost everyone has eaten a baked potato, whether it’s served in a school canteen or by their grandmother. An unglamorous and simple meal, it might come as a surprise that this is Caviar Kaspia’s signature dish. However, this is not your average baked potato. Twice-cooked Brittany Potato Samba is topped with heaps of the best caviar (you guessed it) and served with creme fraiche, a sprinkle of chives and a glass of its best vodka – if you’re that way tilted, of course.
Beyond its hometown of Paris, Caviar Kaspia also frequently opens pop-up stores and has outposts in Dubai and Sao Paulo, and is opening a location in Saint Tropez on July 1. Los Angeles, as well as one in London arriving just in time for Fashion Week in September.
To celebrate its role as the canteen of French fashion, we launched a capsule collection celebrating the restaurant as part of our flagship product Not In Paris. It’s a taste of the Parisian institution, minus the vodka shots and decadent seafood (and the resulting bill).
Featured in the drop are a graphic hoodie and t-shirt that carry the gold sign font above his front door on his left chest. The latter also includes the design found on the boxes of its signature fine caviar – a sturgeon swimming in the water while an old wooden boat sails overhead.
The press release is available now, online at the Highsnobiety store and in person at our Paris pop-up, 35-37 Rue des Francs-Bourgeois, 75004.
