In Recovery, launch Disk Utility and unlock the startup volume. Then you'll be able to restore to it.

There is no unlock option that I Could see. All that it says is that it cannot restore a user that has active file vault.

It sounds like you're using legacy FileVault, which you shouldn't be doing in 10.7. How exactly are you trying to restore, and what is the exact wording of the error message?
