Unplugged

Hey, remember me?

The hubbs had some much needed time off of work and we just unplugged and spent quality time together.  Love that!

I planned a couple of fun dates including watching the BSU game at Buffalo Wild Wings, going to see Immortals and an intimate dinner at….

The Melting Pot!

The Melting Pot is a fondue restaurant neither of us had never been to before.  At $70 and up per couple, it’s a little pricey.  While the food was fine, the experience and the service was excellent.  We agreed we’d definitely return for another special night out.

We started off with the cheese fondue which was served with bread, green apples, and veggies for dipping.

Melty hot cheese
Dippin stuff

Mmm… cheesy.

The broccoli and the green apples were my favorite.

Next was our entree (we opted to skip the salad for the sake of getting too full).

Bubbling citrusy broth.

J ordered the French Quarter: “Fillet mignon, breast of chicken and tender shrimp all seasoned with Cajun spices and served with Andoullie sausages.”  I loved the extra kick of the Cajun spices!

I ordered the Seafood Trio: “Tender shrimp, sesame-crusted sushi-grade ahi tuna and cedar plank salmon.”  The salmon was by far my favorite.

We scarfed our entrees down and I completely forgot to take pictures.  Meat is meat, right?

Besides, the best course was definitely… DESSERT!

There were so many chocolate dessert fondues to choose from, but eventually we decided on the s’mores: “Milk chocolate with marshmallow cream flambeed and garnished with graham cracker crumbs.”

We had so many fun treats to dip into the chocolate fondue: brownies, cheesecake, poundcake, rice krispies, coated marshmallows, strawberries and bananas.  I think I liked the brownies the best.  Double chocolate!

Since we were celebrating our 4th anniversary late, they made us this special plate for the occasion.

It was so fun to get all dressed up for a night on the town.  ðŸ™‚

Ever been to a fondue restaurant?
