    Citarella sometimes has them. A place in Chinatown on Centre Street (between Canal and Broome, on the east side--I can't recall the name) specializes in lobsters and usually has them. It is next to the Buddhist temple.

      I believe you're talking about Centre Seafood, Inc. I haven't seen scallops there before, but I do occasionally find them at the fishmongers on Grand between Chrystie and the Bowery as well as the Union Square Farmers Market.

        Wild edibles, and most upscale fishmongers will order them for you.

            Chinatown will not be any crazier than usual.
