Eating Shrimp Cocktail in an Acceptable Manner

chowmensch | Feb 17, 2011 11:12 AM

You are eating shrimp cocktail at an upscale steahouse. The shrimp are large and tasty. Think Morton's, Capital Grill, Smith and Wolenskys, etc. You take a shrimp off the platter, glass, dish, whatever and begin to eat. Is it okay to take each shrimp with your hand and take three or so bites or should you take a shrimp from the platter and cut it up with your knife and eat the portions with your fork. Or is acceptable to use either method? What say you, Hounds?
