The Melting Pot Restaurant Review

: The Melting Pot refers not only to the diners from all walks of life that converge here, but also to the restaurant’s signature dish: fondue. Comfortable booths and banquettes and water gently cascading over decorative glass paneling in the softly lit dining room help create a casually romantic feel. If the atmosphere isn’t enough to set the stage for romance, sharing a pot of warm fondue certainly will. And share you must, because the fondues are designed for two or more, so don't come alone (the restaurant does offer a limited number of individual New American entrées ranging from honey orange duck breast to andouille sausage). The Melting Pot cheddar fondue is a signature, with aged, medium-sharp cheddar and Emmental cheeses, lager beer, garlic and seasonings, while the Classic Alpine with aged Gruyère, raclette and Fontina cheeses is comparably milder but no less flavorful and indulgent. There is also a sweet side to fondue, and a pot of Yin & Yang, consisting of dark and white chocolate, will lay to rest the question of choosing one or the other. The wine list has several affordable selections by the glass.
