The Melting Pot
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.
Today, the company reigns as the premier fondue, wine, and drink restaurant, stretching across North America with more than 140 restaurants. 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 at the Buffalo location, locally owned and operated by Jim and Virginia Materese, groups of foodies gather around tables to dunk warm hunks of bread in gooey cheese, delectable steaks and seafood in sizzling oil, and sweet fruits and desserts into chocolate swirled with peanut butter. Birthday revelers and couples can share decadent evenings at private tables, splitting four-course meals that include cheese fondue, salad, entree, and dessert.
