Caviar ATM Debuts In Los Angeles, Also Sells Truffles & Bottarga (PHOTO)

We get it. You're a high-powered executive/European art dealer/insufferable foodie/socialite about town and you don't always have time for a leisurely meal at Petrossian, Los Angeles' premiere caviar restaurant.

Now your high-class cravings are covered with LA's first caviar vending machines, located in Westfield Century City, Westfield Topanga and Burbank Town Center.

Described as "caviar boutiques," the vending machines stock caviar from all over the world. They also offer other gourmet foods like truffles, escargot, bottarga blinis, gourmet salts and caviar accessories.

A sample of the wares include Imperial River Beluga Caviar, for $500 an ounce, and a pink mother of pearl spoon for $4, notes Los Angeles magazine.


Food blog Eater points out that Los Angeles is a little late to the party when it comes to caviar vending machines. They first popped up in Moscow over two years ago.

But the Southern California region boasts a few other unusual ATMs. Sprinkles Cupcakes launched a 24-hour cupcake automat in March of this year at its Beverly Hills location. A month later, some intrepid medical marijuana businessmen launched a pot vending machine in Santa Ana, Calif.
