Owner Richard Gere isn’t the only sexy thing at Bedford Post. Chef Brian Lewis’s Maine diver scallops are as luscious as these bivalves get, with a perfectly golden sear yielding to rare, jiggly, pearlescent interiors. Paired with mouthfillingly rich Marcona almond butter, and punctuated by plumped sultanas, these seductive scallops are our idea of afternoon delight.
