Caviar Emptor

Your annual caviar consumption probably peaks around the holidays. This year, you can celebrate with a clean conscience thanks to Florida’s Mote Marine Laboratory. This nonprofit marine conservation center uses eco-friendly aquaculture practices to produce sustainable caviar from Siberian sturgeon, an otherwise overfished species. The Ossestra-grade eggs have already found their way onto the menus of top restaurants like New York’s Ai Fiori, Napa Valley’s Meadowood and Los Angeles’s Gjelina, and are awaiting your blinis and Champagne. Save some leftovers for New Year’s Day scrambled eggs. $78 for 1 ounce; cortezbottarga.com.
