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.

On a summer trip to Paris, Suzette's Creperie's owner, Suzette, fell in love with the local street vendors' delicate, ultra-thin crepes. When she got back to the States, she decided to give Chicagoans a taste of the fancy fast-food eats she adored and started selling them herself out of a crepe cart.
Since those authentically French beginnings, Suzette's cart has blossomed into a full-fledged French bistro in Downtown Wheaton, though sweet and savory crepes remain the focus of the menu. One arrives stuffed with saut?ed salmon; another ensconces hot fudge and banana slices. Duck confit, wine, and other French staples complement the crepes.
The service at Suzette's is European-style, which means that the staff allows meals to unfold at a leisurely pace, rather than leaving a running stopwatch on each table. Live jazz often enhances the European atmosphere.
