Intimate private tables provide a perfect setting for romantic couples. The crowd at the Melting Pot is quite sophisticated, as is the dress code. A jacket is recommended but not necessary. To start your fondue experience, the chef will heat the Gruyere, Emmenthaler and white wine for green apples, bread and raw vegetables. You cook your own meat and seafood in oil or broth and then dip it in one of the many dipping sauces. Dessert involves a dozen or more chocolate sauces and bits of pound cake, strawberries and cheesecake.
