Dip into some gluten-free delights at The Melting Pot

I’ll admit it – sometimes all I want to have for dinner is some fruit, cheese, and if I’m feeling extra adventurous, chocolate.  But fresh fruit dipped in chocolate and other savory items dipped in cheese?  Now you’re talking.

The Melting Pot is a delightful fondue restaurant that offers you all the cheese and chocolate until your heart’s content (they offer other yummy items too).  And now they have a special gluten-free menu, so you don’t have to worry about cross-contamination.

In a cheesy mood?  The Spinach Artichoke or Wisconsin Trio (request that the fondue be made with cornstarch) are must-haves.  The vegetables and apple slices provided are perfect dipping accompaniments.

If you don’t feel like getting your dip on, you can always order one of The Melting Pot’s classic salads or special entrees including a  seafood trio with shrimp scallops and salmon, a New York strip steak, and a delightful vegetarian melange.  Just be sure to ask for all sauces on the side. You can put your Top Chef hat on and  choose how your entree is cooked too – Coq au Vin, Bourguignonne, or Mojo Style.

Last and certainly not least – the chocolate fondue.  Even if you don’t want to dip your dinner, you will definitely not want to miss out on the chocolate fondue.  With dipper choices such as strawberries, bananas, and passion fruit – how can you resist?   The Yin & Yang is always a nice choice if you want to sample both white and dark chocolate, or if you are feeling really decadent, The Flaming Turtle with pecans and caramel is the way to go.  If you don’t feel like going too exotic, stick with the classic chocolate fondue, which you KNOW will be good.

Whether you want to enjoy a delicious gluten-free dinner or just an evening treat, The Melting Pot is a must stop for all of your cheesy (and chocolate) needs.
