Lat Sunday for my birthday (#29!), Hubs took me to The Melting Pot for dinner. While the food and atmosphere were amazing, the best gift of all was a few hours of freedom from a clingy baby! Sorry, Sweet T but it’s the truth.
The booths are set up to make patrons feel like they are the only ones in the restaurant. We didn’t see any other diners until we left the building. Loved the light fixture in the booth and took a picture.
First course was a cheese fondue
The second course was a salad and I neglected to take a picture. Third course was meats and veggies. We both like the filet mignon best, although the ravioli was the best we’ve ever tasted.
Don’t forget the best part…dessert. We opted for dark chocolate fondue with sea salt. Yum!
This experience got me to thinking about creating fondue at home. With a $100+ price tag for two people, trips to The Melting Pot will probably be limited to once a decade for us.
A few years back I got one of those do-it-yourself chocolate fondue kits and was sorely disappointed. The chocolate kept burning and it was such a pain to clean that I never used it again. It would have been easier just to microwave a candy bar and dip marshmallows in it! Amazon has a few fondue sets in the $40 price range that have good ratings so I’m thinking about getting one in order to have an easy way to create affordable, romantic date nights at home.
So do you fondue?
