This Valentine's Day, New Yorkers can celebrate their love with a truly unique and decadent dining experience as iconic culinary forces Lysée, the pastry gallery redefining New York's dessert landscape, and Michelin-starred Caviar Russe, the city's leading authority on caviar, team up to create a limited-edition pastry that reimagines Valentine’s Day desserts.

Lysée's namesake and signature cake, a delightful combination of Korean toasted brown rice mousse, caramel, and Elliot pecan sablé, will be transformed into a Valentine's Day rose topped with Caviar Russe’s osetra caviar pearls and a gold leaf garnish. This unexpected pairing is a match made in culinary heaven, offering a symphony of nutty, briny and rich flavors that will leave a lasting impression.

Pastry Chef Eunji Lee, known for her creative approach to pastry as edible art through the lens of French, Korean and New York City flavors, and Caviar Russe’s Chef Edgar Panchernikov understanding of the nuanced world of caviar, came together to demonstrate that culinary boundaries are meant to be explored.

The caviar-accented brown rice mousse cake delivers an unexpected, decadent bite and unforgettable addition to Valentine’s Day will be available as part of Caviar Russe's pre-fixe Valentine's Day tasting menu ($600 per person) for the evening as well as à la carte (for $65) in the bar and available for the rest of the weekend while supplies last. Reservations available through Resy.
