While the fondue concept may seem like a throwback to the 70's, every time I've dined at The Melting Pot had been absolutely delightful, with wonderful food, exceptional service, and adequate atmosphere (okay, the atmosphere isn't so great at the Lake Worth location). The most popuplar items on the menu seem to be the specials - they run about $40 per person, and include appetizer, entree, and desert fondues. The first course includes a chesse fondue, selected from several different kinds, with a wide variety of breads. I would recommend the cheddar, but if you like a sweeter cheese, try the Swiss. Your waiter prepares the fondue before your eyes, all the while describing exactly what he or she is doing, and what ingredients are used. If you're particularly lucky, you may get an enthusiastic waiter who will light your table on fire for an impressive display of fire on the table! Next is the entree, which may include steak or lobster, as well as vegetables, cooked in your choice of oil or broth. An exquisite vegetarian platter is also offered, which includes delicious half-moon cheese ravioli and the vegetables (mushrooms, potatoes, squash, and broccoli). For the finale, choose from a selection of chocolate fondues, served with fruit, cheesecake, and brownies. Dining at the Melting Pot can take nearly two hours, so be sure to set aside an entire evening for this pleasure. Reservations are suggested, but not required. A second Palm Beach County location is in West Palm Beach.
