Where can I find Bottarga in NYC? And about how much does it cost?
I usually buy mine at Di Palo, where the grey mullet roe (rather than the tuna), vacuum packed whole lobe, is about $90 a pound these days, or about $23-$30 a "lobe", depending on the weight. I've also seen it at Buon Italia in Chelsea Market, at Dean & Deluca Prince St. (VERY expensive), and a Spanish bottarga at Despana on Broome Street - I don't remember the price off hand, but I think it was in line w/ DiPalo.
I find that the one lobe lasts quite a while for us - maybe three pasta dishes for two.
