Now that spinach has been deemed a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to cheese. Get a sailor's worth of energizing, melted cheese with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fondue and dunkable desserts at The Magic Pot Fondue Bistro, located in Edgewater. Crêpe menu is not available on Fridays or Saturdays.
The Magic Pot's menu offers international flavors of melted goodness. Cheesy appetizer dipping-bowls, which are served with bread and apples, include bruschetta, with mozzarella melted in white wine with fresh basil, Roma tomatoes, and garlic, and queso—a blend of cheddar and monterey jack melted in apple-cider with fresh cilantro, roasted peppers, and sweet onions with or without jalapenos ($16 for 1–2 people). Burbling hotly like the magma in volcanoes, The Magic Pot's entrees overflow with savory bites of chicken, beef, pork, and seafood. Slam-dunk beef, teriyaki pork, and honey-garlic chicken in sesame, teriyaki, and Asian-chili sauces ($21 for one; $32 per couple), or opt for the cordon bleu crêpe, a mouth-melting combo of chicken, ham, and swiss paired with a rémoulade cream-sauce ($14). Seasoned broth-based fondues are also available.
The Magic Pot's dippy desserts ($16 for 1–2; $22 for 2–4) are made with Callebaut Belgian chocolate. Mix milk chocolate, peanut butter, graham crackers, and melty marshmallows to make your mouth think it's rafting down a fluffernutter river aboard a s'more. Or create caramel-nut clusters with milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and buttery caramel. All fondue desserts are served with fruit, brownies, marshmallows, and rice-krispy treats for dunking. Couples can customize a three-course magic feast ($70 for two people) and bring their own bottle of wine to wash it all down.
- Great service, cozy atmosphere, and wonderful food. We got a coupon off http://groupons.com [sic] and decided to try it out. We thought the portions were just right, at first we were afraid we wouldn't be able to eat it all...nope we ate everything that they brought out. – Amanda B., Yelp
- The servers are always really nice, and they remember you when you go back. – Jaime W., Yelp
- Overall, very cute place. It's relaxing, intimate and the fondue is great. – Stella Y., Yelp
