best shrimp cocktail?

is it at a steakhouse, or at a seafood place? I want big fat beautiful perfectly cooked shrimp, as much the epitome as possible.

  1. In ny, Peter Luger. In Miami, prime 112 or nemo :). Btw, I heard they were opening a prime 112 in nyc. The steaks aint no great shakes but if they have the same shimp cocktail, you are in for an expensive treat :).

    1. Although I was born and raised in New England, and have spent a lot of time in my father's "homeland" of New Orleans, the absolutely best shrimp cocktail I have ever eaten were the ones I cooked according to Alton Brown's (from Good Eats program, They are broiled and chilled. Of course, you need to be able to rely on your seafood source to begin with, but I thought these were great and you don't need to go out to get them!
