abalone dishes

I love abalone. Have had them fresh, dried, sauteed, in soups and jook... I've had them in Toronto, Vancouver, LA, SF, NYC, Hong Kong, Sydney...

But I admit that I've never had them outside of a Chinese restaurant. Not sure why. Recently, I was at a seafood restaurant on the Central Coast and saw it on the menu-- breaded and in a pear sauce (which I thought sounded very strange for abalone). Since I wasn't sure if it would be good, I didn't want to fork over the $45 to try it.

But now, back in LA, I'm wondering--where are the good, non-Chinese places to try abalone? ARE there even any? How are they prepared??
