The Melting Pot


Have any of you ever eaten at The Melting Pot before?  It's crazy.  I hadn't had fondue since the 80s, when my parents had a set and had frequent dinner parties.  We went last night with some friends, and 4 hours later we walked out of there with too-full bellies (of which mine still hasn't recovered).  But as you can see from the image above, dessert was AWESOME.  Talk about a dessert-lover's dream come true!  So worth the fullness, the not being able to sleep the whole night through, the food hangover I'm experiencing right now.  Mmm chocolate...

Melanie - I completely agree. We weren't expecting that when we got the bill but we rarely have dinners like that so it was worth it.

Abbie - After this I'm pretty sure I'd love to go to a fondue party!

my work had a dinner there and it was so crazy! we had 13 people and enough food to feed 30. Great fun, but glad I didn't have to pay the bill!

We've taken my in-laws there for their anniversary and we went there for our first "official" date. And I've been thinking I really would like to go there again soon. Yum.

So much fun! I first had fondue in Amsterdam, and every time I go the Melting Pot, I'm reminded of that trip!

Melting Pot is seriously YUM! but expensive.. They do have happy hour at the one by me. :)

Also the last time I was in there the waitress told me the secret to the cheese fondue is dusting the cheese with floor before you melt.

Yum, I do enjoy fondue, and the Melting Pot does it right. Have you been to Geja's? I felt like I was walking through a hobbit's house, the ambiance there is really neat.

Yes, it's fun and I love me some fondue! If you're ever in NYC, a great place for this is Artisinal. We had somebody w/ us who had lived in Sweden before and even she sang it's praises.

This is mouth watering! I've tried all three courses of fondue before, but I think the dessert is always the best.
