There probably aren't many more delightful ways to spend National Caviar Day, if it turns out to be a balmy evening, than out on the terrace at Ognisko in South Kensington. Sip vodka, enjoy and imagine what this place must have been like when Polish emigres and officers were here during the Second World War. Blinis with 50g of Royal Belgian Oscietra Caviar paired with their own Kavka vodka are £75

If you love the idea of caviar but can't quite get your head around fish eggs - you can always cheat at this Russian restaurant with a starter of aubergine caviar for a relatively puny £8. Of course, they also have the real deal on offer going up to £200 for 60g of Beluga.

When he was just 26 years old, Bellamy's owner Gavin Rankin was the world’s youngest accredited caviar dealer to sign a contract with the Soviet Union. So you'd expect Bellamy's to be a pretty good place to try caviar and you'd be right. There are three types of caviar on offer here - Aquitaine, Oscietra and Baeri. Try 30g of Baeri Caviar with blinis and a glass of rare Veduga Vodka for £50 for a pitch perfect London lunch for one.
