Fondue has had a resurgence for one very good reason: It's enjoyable to share with a group or a "special" friend. The Melting Pot infuses that idea with a contemporary energy. The concept is simple: It's all fondue, starting with cheese, then seafood and/or meat, and finishing with chocolate. The Melting Pot also has an extensive award-winning wine list to add extra giddiness and/or romance to the meal. The dining room has a clean, minimalist esthetic, with softly colored walls, carefully chosen art, and private rooms. The Melting Pot is conveniently located near several downtown hotels for those wanting to dine somewhere familiar while away from home.
