Do you have plans yet for New Year's Eve? This is certainly the time to start thinking about it. Depending on what you want to do, you may need to make reservations and the earlier the better. Let me offer one suggestion for your consideration.
For the last few years, I had dined on New Year's Eve at Savory Tastes Cafe in Reading. Sadly, this fine restaurant closed this past October. So I have been unsure what I would do this year. But I think I may have found a new destination.
The Melting Pot, an excellent fondue restaurant in Bedford, is having a special New Year's Eve dinner. They are now taking reservations and I am sure they will fill up quickly so you should act quickly if you are interested.
Dinner will be a 5-course fixed menu including:
1) Colossal Shrimp Cocktail
Served with our signature spicy cocktail sauce.
2) Champagne Cheese Fondue
Fontina and Butterkäse cheeses combined in a champagne base, festively blended with shallots, roasted garlic and chopped dates.
3) Celebration New Year Salad
Chopped Romaine lettuce with cherry tomatoes, cucumber, croutons sprinkled with Ementhaler cheese. Served with an Italian Balsamic Vinagrette dressing.
Lobster Tail, Filet Mignon Medallion, Duck, Teryaki-Marinated Sirloin, Marinated Breast of Chicken and Potstickers cooked in your choice of cooking style. Accompanied by seasonal vegetables and our unique selection of dipping sauces.
5) Bananas Foster Chocolate Fondue
Made with your choice of white or milk chocolate. Served with an assortment of fruit, cakes and marshmallows for dipping.
The cost is only $75 per person (which includes a bottle of either Champagne, White Wine or Red wine per couple. Tax and 18% minimum gratuity will be added.) I think this is a very reasonable price for everything you get.
There will even be options available for vegetarians, children and large parties. Call them for more information.
Check out my review of The Melting Pot. Hopefully I will see you there on New Year's Eve.
