1. Dorsia, in American Psycho (2000)

In American Psycho character Patrick Bateman's (Christian Bale) fictional world, Dorsia is the ultimate status symbol. And Patrick might have a bone-colored business card, an upper west side apartment, and a flawless skincare regime, but he can't get a reservation there.

When he tries to snag a same-day reservation, the hostess laughs in his face, prompting him into yet another homicidal rage. Ultimately, the axe falls on his colleague Paul Allen, not because he has the Fisher account, but because he was able to get a table at Dorisa. The best part is Patrick triumphant taunt, "Try getting a reservation at Dorsia now, you fucking stupid bastard!"

Yet, we never actually see Dorsia. Hell, we don't even know what's on the menu, but we know we'd do anything to get in. Anything.
