The Melting Pot
There's nothing cheesy about serving yourself, not when you get to cozy up to a warm pot of fondue at the Melting Pot. You get your choice of seasoned broths or oils, as well as your pick from a variety of meat-and-veggie combos; after the raw ingredients arrive, you fire up the table and get cooking, plunging the cut-to-order tenderloin and chicken, or shrimp and lobster, or mushrooms, potato slices and broccoli, into the hot liquid. When the tidbit's done to your specs, take it out, dip it into one of the Melting Pot's creative sauces, and enjoy. Repeat the process as often as you want for a full meal. But be sure to save room for dessert, because the reward for all your hard work is a superb chocolate fondue.
