The Melting Pot Restaurant Review

: Preparing your own dinner at this attractive fondue restaurant offers lots of sizzle. Dark and romantic, this outpost of the 40-year-old national chain is professionally run with helpful servers in sync with a different kind of dining. The food comes to you raw on plates that also have specific spots for various sauces. The array doesn’t look like near enough to assuage hunger, but by the end of the meal you’ll be sated --- though hopefully not so much that there isn’t room for the chocolate fondue dessert. The appetizer cheese fondue made with four cheeses is practically a meal in itself. Entrées are simple: seafood, chicken, pork or beef, ready for the diner to skewer and dunk in a simmering fondue pot. The wine list includes more than 250 selections. To celebrate its anniversary, the chain has invented some quirky new twists on classic cocktails.
