According to a press release, harvesting is tightly controlled, making them a rare find on U.S. menus.

- Seared Scallops with Cauliflower Puree, Golden Raisins and Brown Butter Vinaigrette. $35
- Scallop BLT with Applewood Smoked Bacon and Heirloom Tomatoes. $17

They recommend pairing the Lion's Paw scallops with Tilia Torrontes wine from Argentina, or Markham Pinot Noir.
We'd just as soon have em' with a Coke, or maybe a batido de trigo, but hey, to each their own.
