Fresh cheap lobster in LA? or online?

Hey all,

I've been reading on the NY Times and other places that lobster prices are at a 25-year low in Maine. I don't see any price difference in the prices here in LA, though. Santa Monica Seafood is obviously pocketing the difference.

One thing I love to do is get the east coast lobsters and then grill them baja west-coast style with drawn butter, cilantro, limes, and flour tortillas. The sweetness of the Maine lobster is a great combination with the smokey baja-style prep.

Anyway, has anyone found cheap Maine lobsters out here? Or maybe a restaurant serving it for cheap?
