Melting Pot - Yum!!

Hpim0667_2 Krissy and I went to a great fondue restaurant, The Melting Pot in Nashville, on our 10 Year Anniversary.  We haven't been in 7 years, so we were definitely ready!  As usual, our expectations were exceeded. 

We ordered the Big Night Out: Four Course Dinner For Two-Fondue Fusion. (Download nashville_dinner_menu_color_email_03081.pdf ) For $89, it's not cheap, but it sure was gooooood. 

We were first served an appetizer of assorted breads, fresh cut cold apples and veggies for dipping into their updated cheese fondue mixture.  The cheese had some onions, garlic and tomatoes mixed in - wow was that delicious!

We each ordered salads - my favorite is the raspberry with bleu cheese.  Krissy had the Caribbean.  She loved it too.

We each had glasses of wine served in our wedding cups we drank from on our wedding day (surprise by Krissy).  Krissy had the Jekel Riesling.  Very good.  I had a merlot - also excellent!

Last, but my favorite, I was able to squeeze in the dessert.  A mixture of cheese cake, marshmellows, bananas, strawberries and other pastries were served to us.  In the fondue pot, was milk chocolate and peanut butter melted and heated just right.  We did not leave a bit of the dessert lying on the plates and I just about licked the hot bowl.  There was no more chocolate dip to be found!  YUM!!

With wine, tip and taxes, our total bill was $131.00.  I would rate our experience a 9 out 10!  It's a bit pricey, but I guess that's how they stay in business.  Excellent service and attention to detail. 

Krissy and I were there for over 2 hours.  We exchanged gifts and laughs and had great conversation.  It was a wonderful night out.  I can't wait for another excuse to go there (as long as we have it in the budget)!


  1. i'm proud of you for wearing sleeves.
    happy anniversary.

  2. I love the Melting Pot. I also love that you guys enjoyed wine from the same glasses you drank from on your wedding day. Kudos to you and Krissy for your creative and romance.

  3. Chris - thank you so much! We had a great night.

  4. Happy Anniversary - there is a Melting Pot in Scottsdale - I've never been that I've heard a great review, maybe I'll make reservations for our anniversary. Actually, we'll be in Africa on our anniversary, but when we get back in July, after eating rice, sweet potatoes and bananas for a few weeks, fondue just might hit the spot!

  5. We go to the Melting Pot all the time. We have made a bit of a tour, eating at several in AZ, Colorado and Kansas. I love the Chef salad with the egg and the smores dessert. Congratulations on your anniversary. My husband and I used to go there alone, but now with the kids older, that is our straight "A" celebration place. Enjoy it alone while you can.....
