Ask the head waiter in your area, he's the one who can arrange it if it can be arranged.
I'd like to know if they do it . Getting food that is not on the menu is not easy. Not impossible. We had one head waiter bring us cookies every night because we expressed a liking for them and another made bananas Foster for a table mate almost every night.

We enjoy shrimp concktail as an appetizer as well. The first night they had it, we made this knnown to our waiter, and after that he got it for us every night - along with the other appetizers we ordered that were on the menu that night!!!! That is what they are there for - to meet and exceed all of your expectations. I am sure if they can do it for you they will. Have a great time!!!
