THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Melting Pot Restaurant Review

: The Melting Pot’s fondue is served amid softly illuminated booths, with private rooms and intimate alcoves for couples. Choose a cooking style --- canola oil, vegetable broth, Caribbean or coq au vin --- and the fun begins to bubble. There’s gluten-free fondue, too. Your best bet is the Four Course Experience, which includes salad, cheese fondue, a choice of entrée platters and chocolate fondue for dessert (fresh fruit, brownies, marshmallows, pound cake and cheesecake). So many fondues, so little time, but we suggest you try dipping bread, vegetables and apples in Gruyère, provolone, Asiago and Fontina cheeses with white wine and hints of pesto, roasted peppers and nutmeg. Then enjoy a Caesar salad with Parmesan-encrusted pine nuts, followed by the entrée platter with lobster tail, filet mignon medallions, porcini-rubbed sirloin, herbed chicken, black tiger shrimp and sun-dried tomato-mascarpone ravioli. An extensive wine list offers more than 400 selections. Tasty cocktails and beers are also on the beverage menu.
