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!
Then, we were treated to assorted streak, chicken, pork, shrimp and lobster which we dipped in a hot vegetable-bouillion. Delicious! We also were given sides of veggies to cook in the fondue. We were stuffed by the end of this.
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)!
