Anyone Using Bottarga?

I've seen bottarga on a few cooking shows lately, and thought it looked good. I don't remember seeing it on any menus around town. Has anyone had it in a restaurant in the Philly area?

    The last time I was at Sola in Bryn Mawr they were doing a scallop dish that they shaved botarga over. That was about a month ago...not sure if it's still on their menu. It added a nice salty contrast to the sweetness of the scallop.

      didn't get a chance to try it, but the james menu looks really great this season and includes a dish with bottarga. love the stuff, hard to find though.

        As the Taiwanese use more of this ingredient than the Italians, check Asian groceries.
