When The Melting Pot originally opened in 1975 just outside Orlando, the location was cozy and quaint, but diners had only three options: swiss-cheese fondue, beef fondue, or chocolate fondue. However, as the restaurant grew in popularity, so did its menu selection and atmosphere. The restaurant first expanded four years later under the leadership of a Melting Pot waiter and enterprising college student named Mark Johnston, who teamed up with his brothers Mike and Bob to open a new outpost in Tallahassee. This location grew in reputation to pave the way for future franchise expansion. Today, the company—now owned by the trio of siblings—reigns as the premier fondue, wine, and drink restaurant, stretching across North America with more than 140 restaurants linked by underground tunnels. The restaurant's menu has also ballooned, and patrons can now expect six varieties of hot dipping cheese paired with salads, meats, and molten chocolate.
On a given night, groups of foodies gather around tables to nosh on signature four-course meals, from cheese-fondue appetizers and various salads to steaks and seafood cooked in a choice of healthy broth or oil. Birthday revelers and couples can share decadent evenings at private tables, capping off meals with chocolate desserts that have defined The Melting Pot for decades.

Every day, Mina used to make a two-hour commute to her job at a restaurant in Queens. The trips were exhausting, and she soon began searching for work closer to home. It was then she discovered a puzzling fact: there were no Spanish restaurants in the Hudson Valley. Mina herself had plenty of experience cooking Spanish cuisine for her family and friends, so she took a risk and opened up her own restaurant.
Mina's Spanish Kitchen strives to channel the atmosphere of an authentic Spanish household. Merengue and bachata play in the background, and diners gather with their children to discuss the past week's adventures at school, work, and spy college. The menu features a little something for everyone—classic appetizers such as empanadas and arepas share menu space with vegetarian and gluten-free options. But the pièce de résistance has to be the signature roast pork: a whole pork shoulder seasoned with a blend of traditional spices and roasted in the oven for several hours until reaches the pinnacle of tenderness. At the New Windsor location, bartenders also sling sangria, mojitos, and signature cocktails from the full bar.
To the uninitiated, the corner of State Route 17K and Clermont Lane might seem like just another unassuming patch of grass. With the aid of modern technology and a parking brake, however, the chefs of ATOMiC lunchbox frequently transform it into a pop-up diner. Settled at the corner in their bright red food truck, they dish out breakfasts of sausage gravy and biscuits or refreshing yogurt parfaits to hungry morning passersby. As lunch bells begin to peal, they ready their signature Hugeburgers, whose massive patties are stuffed with chorizo, bacon, cheese, and onion. ATOMiC lunchbox’s scratch-made salsa adds a tart counterpoint to flautas, and the truck’s legendary wings arrive double-spiced and perfectly crisp, like the wings a second-generation phoenix.
Crystal chandeliers hover above tables accented with colorful cloth napkins, illuminating Bombay Castle's guests as they dine within the contemporary restaurant's sunlit garden room, spacious dining room, or elegant banquet hall. However, despite Bombay Castle's contemporary decor, the menu remains traditional. Experienced chefs lovingly handcraft authentic paneer and warm naan and bake seasoned lamb, chicken, and goat in a clay tandoor oven. The restaurant even extends its culinary borders to include several Indo-Chinese dishes packed with spicy chicken, thin noodles, and vegetables, whereas popular Indian desserts made from milk and spiced sugar syrup can finish off any hearty meal or indoor naan-tossing match.
