Melting Pot: Food Review 43 of 52
As part of my New Year's Resolution to try 52 new restaurants, diners, coffee shops and bakeries during 2009, I present the following review.
The Melting Pot
80 South 9th Street
Minneapolis, MN 55402
Who I Went With
Scott, his parents and David
What I Ate:
Alp and Dell Cheese Fondue served with apples, carrots, breads and chips.
Alpine Ridge Salad (bed of mixed greens topped with oven roasted tomatoes, award-winning Gruyère, Raclette and Fontina cheeses, hard-boiled eggs and honey roasted almonds, topped with a robust shallot vinaigrette.)
Fondue Feast: Filet Mignon, Sauerbraten NY Strip, Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Bratwurst, Hefeweizen Marinated Shrimp, Roasted Garlic Crusted Chicken, Sun Dried Tomato Ravioli and Fresh Vegetables.
Chocolate Fondue with strawberries, cheesecake, marshmallows and brownies.
Would I Go Back
Yes. This was my first fondue experience and it was a lot of fun. A very interactive meal. We were there a couple hours and the time flew by. There was so much food!
Worth the Price
This was the "spendiest" place I've visited on this journey. $45 a person. But, with the amount of food you get, plus the enjoyment of the fondue experience, it's very much worth it!
