My parents, daughters, and I spent our Christmas Eve in Palm Beach, Florida, having a holiday dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, the Melting Pot. Even though it was a holiday, they were busting at the seams.
Sherri was our server and she exceeded our expectations. Our Melting Pot meal started with spinach/artichoke and classic alpine cheese fondues. While both fondues were delicious, the spinach/artichoke did not go well with the apple dippers.
California and caesar salads made up our next course. This is one of my favorite parts of the Melting Pot meal. They make delicious salad combinations and the garlic & wine shaker seasonings compliment the tastes nicely. We each ordered different entrees, with my parents having the chicken pot stickers, which I had never seen on the menu. The entrees were served with the traditional vegetables and easy to cook, though part of the fun of using the skewers has to be passed up for the potstickers since you just fish them out with the recovery spoon. Everything was delicious, my favorite being the pork.
We finished off our evening with milk chocolate and smores fondues. The dipping choices were bananas, strawberries, pound cake, brownies & blondes, pineapples, rice krispy treats, and marshmallows. We paid the check in misery since we were all stuffed. Melting Pot has a way of provoking that feeling.
My review in a nutshell: a home run at another Melting Pot, one I only first visited today. The service was impeccable, the menu options plentiful, the ambiance gets an A+, and overall value was very good. I plan to visit many more in the future and try new menu options as well. What is your favorite fondue at the Melting Pot?
Special occasions were made for the Melting Pot.
