The Melting Pot's cooks serve up a menu of fondue cheese and Swiss-French cuisine, enabling parties of two or four to revel in the warm, gooey glory of a three-course dinner. Diners choose between two house pours—a chardonnay and a merlot—before embarking on a voyage across the steamy sea of mouthwatering melts with a selection from the cheese fondues. Each fondue is escorted with an entourage of fresh bread, vegetables, and apples, which are captured by spears for convenient dipping or fencing matches across the table. Morsels dive into fontina and butterkäse cheese to mingle with spinach, artichoke hearts, and garlic in the spinach-artichoke cheese fondue, or plunge into the Fiesta cheese fondue, in which lager beer, jalapeño peppers, and salsa latch onto tidbits for a safe ride into mouths. Servers then whisk out a tasting platter loaded with uncooked morsels of shrimp, chicken, pork tenderloin, teriyaki-marinated sirloin, and fresh vegetables. Diners skewer meats and veggies, dip them into a miniature cauldron of broth, and dunk freshly cooked bites into an array of dipping sauces.
While the platter is meant to provide a chance to sample some of the menu's most popular items, vegetarians may sub out meat for more veggies, shrimp-averse eaters can ask for more chicken, and obstinate vending machines can feast on a bowl of quarters.
