The Melting Pot Restaurant Review

: Bring a date to this fondue haven, where you can dip your favorite treats in everything from cheese to chocolate. Choose from four cooking styles for your entrées: Coq au Vin (Burgundy infused with fresh herbs, spices and mushrooms seasoned Court Bouillon, Bourguignonne (in cholesterol-free canola oil) or Caribbean-spiced Mojo. Order from a four-course menu, or make a selection such as honey orange duck breast, Pacific white shrimp, salmon filet or Memphis-style barbecue pork medallion, available as entrées individually or in combos of three. There are even vegetarian and gluten-free options. Salads are just about the only items not cooked at the table. While the restaurant serves dinner only, it will open for lunch on select holidays and for parties of 15 or more.
