What did we eat?

Related to the "shrimp vs. Prawns" thread: last night we ate at 27 Sunrise in C-town NYC. One thing we had from the live tank was a pair of crustaceans that looked like a cross between Italian "scampi" and spiny lobsters: but with white shells with dark stripes, non-lobster claws, lots of swimmerets. No one at the restaurant had any idea what they might be called in English. The General Manager said they are from the Pacific, and are in season now, very plentiful (especially in Hong Kong). They were incredibly sweet and tender (cooked as "salt-baked). I cannot find anything similar in any of my reference books. Does anyone know what they are called?
