Melting Pot: Valentine's Day Dinner or Dessert

Are you seeking a romantic spot for Valentine's Day? An intimate dining experience?

The Melting Pot, an excellent fondue restaurant in Bedford, is having a couple Valentine's Day specials. They are now taking reservations and I am sure they will fill up quickly so you should act quickly if you are interested

First, if you want dinner, there is the "Fond of Fondue" Package which costs $150 per couple. It includes a 5 course meal, a Love Martini or glass of wine per person, single rose, and picture of your party in a souvenir frame.

Your first course is Shrimp Cocktail. (I had this at their New Year's Eve dinner and it consisted of four large shrimp with a spicy cocktail sauce. Very good shrimp with a tangy sauce.)

Your second course is a choice between the a Champagne Cheese Fondue and Spinach & Artichoke Cheese Fondue. (I had the Champagne one before. It is Fontina and Butterkäse cheeses combined in a Champagne base, blended with shallots, garlic and chopped dates. It is quite delicious).

Third course is a choice of Strawberry Hearts Salad or a Caesar Salad.

Your main course is a choice of Cupids Delight (Medallions of Filet Mignon, Lobster Tail, Italian Herb Chicken, Ahi Tuna, Shrimp and NY Strip Steak) or the Valentine's Feast (Twin Lobster Tails, Ahi Tuna, Salmon, Shrimp & Scallops). You get to choose the cooking style.

Your dessert coourse is a choice between the Bananas Foster Chocolate Fondue or the Raspberry Dark Chocolate Fondue. (I have had the Banana fondue which had bananas mixed with either white or milk chocolate and brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, banana liquer, and spiced rum. It was superb.)

If you don't want dinner, how about just dessert?

They have their "Chocolate Lovin'" Option which costs $65 per Couple, though it is only available after 9:45p.m. You get to choose from one of the 2 special chocolate fondues, plus you receive a ½ bottle of Perrier Jouet Grand Brut Champagne, a single rose, and a picture of your party in a souvenir frame.

For both of their packages, you can order additional flowers.
2 Additional Roses: $20
5 Additional Roses: $35
A Dozen Roses: $60
