Certain kinds of dining necessitate the invention of new utensils: Asian cooking begat chopsticks, clam chowder brought about the crazy straw, and now there are forks long enough to keep cheese away from hands. Skinny dip with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fondue at The Melting Pot in Durham.

The Melting Pot serves up a menu of cheese fondues, dessert pots, and American cuisine. Diners clink glasses before embarking on a voyage across the steamy sea of mouthwatering melts with a selection from the cheese fondues. Each fondue is escorted by 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 ($16) or plunge into the Fiesta cheese fondue, in which lager beer, jalapeño peppers, and salsa latch onto tidbits for a safe ride into mouths ($16). An array of surf 'n' turf tempts tongues with dishes such as the Seafood Trio entree, in which juicy shrimp, sesame-crusted ahi tuna, and cedar-plank salmon sonorously harmonize on renditions of inspirational power ballads ($24). The Melting Pot also offers gluten-free menu options upon request.

The Melting Pot

While steak, seafood, salads, and wines share the spotlight, it's the fondue pot that transforms the dining experience at The Melting Pot Durham into an interactive one. Bubbling at the center of the table, steel cauldrons steam with cheese blends such as aged cheddar and lager beer, or fontina, butterkase, and buttermilk blue. Diners spear slices of granny smith apples, artisan breads, and veggies, before dipping them into the thick, creamy cheese. While a wine and cheese fondue pairing may suit the evening on its own, a fresh salad followed by lobster and steak turns the experience in to a three-course event. Continue the dipping feast by adding one of nine velvety chocolate fondues and diners can gather around the table to dunk strawberries, marshmallows or chunks of cheesecake.

This was mine and my daughter's first time dining here. I also brought one of my best friends who had a less than pleasing experience at another location on the coast. We all enjoyed ourselves. The food was flavorful and plenty. I would come back again.
