Dan's Birthday @ the Melting Pot

Happy Birthday to my Dan, I love you! (This post is 2 days late, but as the saying goes...)

Anyhow, if you haven't been to a Melting Pot yet and there's one near you, you're missing out. I've never been to a fondue restaurant before, in fact I didn't know such a thing existed... Dan and I went on Wednesday night for his birthday and it was fantastic.

If you download their menu (we went to the Irvine, CA location) there's a Big Night Out four course meal. That's what we had except we substituted the Snickers fondue for White Chocolate with Amaretto. Yummm...

The setting is cozy, intimate even. I don't know if all locations are like the one we went to, but you could see only one table from ours and only half of it at that. It felt very private, like we were the only ones there. (Well, except for some woman in the next room who seemed to cackle at everything that was even remotely funny. It was so hard to ignore her! I so could not be friends with someone who laughed like her...)

We're definitely going again as soon as we can manage it. It's pricey, but definitely worth it. Oh, and their martinis are fabulous. Try the Apple Carmel martini if you go.
