The first Melting Pot restaurant opened in 1975 with just three menu items: beef fondue, Swiss cheese fondue, and chocolate fondue. Today, the menu - and the number of restaurants across the US - has grown immensely. The Melting Pot makes fondue a memorable, four-course dining experience where you can really dip into something different. A number of tasty entrees - with a variety of special dipping sauces - are available, including beef, chicken, duck, lobster, shrimp, scallops, and salmon. Cheese fondues can be ordered separately and are included with the purchase of any combination dinner. Each entrée includes breads, savory vegetables, and a choice of three salads. For dessert, The Melting Pot offers wide selection of creamy, mouth-watering chocolate fondue desserts. Be aware that the fondue concept - securing food to the end of long, pointy forks and dipping it into hot liquid - is fun for older kids, but difficult (if not dangerous) for the wee ones.
