Caviar Powder ($88)

Petrossian's Caviar Powder offers a surefire way to elevate any meal. This is the real thing: roe of sturgeon fish that's been dried for longer shelf life and served in a compact grinder, which works just like a pepper mill. Sprinkle it full or ground on everything from smoked salmon to scrambled eggs. Since fresh sturgeon roe is mostly water this 30-gram dispenser goes a long way for $88, especially toward making each guest feel like royalty. -- LK
