Caviar and Steak Tartare

Caviar and Steak Tartare by Petrossian

This simple dish is something special indeed, it comes from an upscale french restaurant right next to Central Park. It's in a beautiful, old-world style building and has great atmosphere and food.
Thank you Doug for sending it to me.
