Eating out is becoming a blood sport.

"Live seafood," which has been available in upscale sushi bars for some time, is increasingly finding its way onto the menus of more mainstream restaurants. Adventurous eaters might try live shrimp, "drunken prawns" (live prawns are plucked from a tank, doused in alcohol and set ablaze) or live flounder.
