A while back I watched The Blues Brothers again. There's a scene where they go into a vert fancy restaurant to recruit one of the band members, who's working as a waiter there. They order shrimp cocktail. In movies and TV at least, shrimp cocktail used to be the signal that you were in a classy joint. I can't remember the last time I saw it on a menu or heard of anyone having it.
