At restaurants and hotels around town, he is known as Mr. Zee, the man who sold them caviar. On the Hollywood block where he worked, he was a familiar figure, a tiny man, always in a suit and tie and hat, and always smiling. To his employees at Caviar & Fine Foods Inc., he has been the kindly boss who can't seem to retire, even though he is 84, because "this was his life," as Bob Dickerson, the firm's operations manager, put it. On Monday, Wladimir Zarotschenzeff, which is Mr.

The wind lifts the nets drying on the beach. A caviar poacher's rowboat has been pulled up on the hot sand. Muscles gleam on a fisherman's bare shoulders, and his pale, watchful eyes reflect the dance of the tides. Magomed the smuggler limps down the beach in southern Russia where he has come, most days this year, to buy supplies for his underworld trade: basins of gleaming black fish eggs, straight from the slashed belly of the sturgeon.

And now for an original twist on that age-old challenge of civic fund raising in tight times.

How do the civic leaders raise money for Little League, youth camps, park and arts projects and all the rest when Main Street businesses are struggling to survive?

Some homeless people in Italy will be savoring beluga caviar this Christmas, thanks to officials who seized 88 pounds of the contraband delicacy from smugglers.

The caviar poachers gathered on the beach before the fierce sun dawned over the Caspian Sea. They belted down a morning vodka, claiming it prevented seasickness.

Weekend mornings, I'm usually happy to stay at home reading, listening to music and generally lolling around. No rushing, all the time in the world for simple pleasures. Toast with homemade jam. Freshly brewed coffee. Or there's breakfast with a friend at Petrossian in West Hollywood, where luxury can be as simple as perfect scrambled eggs garnished with caviar. The cappuccino is well made and strong. You can ease into the morning with a Bellini or a lavender mimosa ? and also have the best bagel and smoked salmon in town.

In what would be a groundbreaking initiative to spur rapprochement with Iran, the Clinton administration is close to a decision to lift economic sanctions on Iranian carpets, caviar and pistachios, U.S. officials said Monday. The gesture, one of several now being considered, would follow the sweeping election victory last month by Iranian reformers, ending two decades of domination by conservatives in Iran's parliament.

Down a winding levee road on the outskirts of Sacramento, just behind a beat-up old trailer, sit the offices of one of the nation's more exclusive luxury food businesses. The collection of concrete tanks and aluminum sheds might not bespeak glamour, but a growing network of chefs and foodies say Stolt Sea Farm's white sturgeon caviar is the next best thing to fine Russian osetra.
