The Melting Pot: "Swiss Fondue American Style" International Tip by grishaV1

International, Nashville: 43 reviews and 100 photos


The Melting Pot is also downtown at 2nd Avenue North 615-742-4970, based on the Swiss idea of fondue pots but changed for American tastes basically. This place I stepped inside to get an idea of what it was about, you immediately walk downstairs to a basement lounge/restaurant type setting. Its very nice and cozy. The fondue pot is brought to your table, and seasoned by the server to your own taste. I am not a great fan of cheese at all, or dairy products, but my friends just went wild for this. Cheeses, they assure you, are aged and creamy to perfection. And whatever entreé you order is cooked to your taste, with coq an vin fondue, mojo fondue, fondue court boullion or fondue bourguignonne sauce styles.

A basic price is listed of 15,00 for two people, each extra person is 7,50, and your dinner is served in courses. Pacific Rim would be my choice for dinner, teriyaki marinated beef, shrimp, pork and duck along with fresh vegetables. For dessert, you have choices of fresh fruits: strawberries, bananas, marshmallows, cheesecake to dip in wonderful choclate sauces of all kinds. Very important to know the hours at this place! Full Fondue Dinners are Mon-Thursday 5pm-10pm, Friday-Sunday they open at 4pm. Cheese and Chocolate Fondue are ONLY Sunday-Thursday from 10pm-11pm, and Friday and Saturday at 11pm (I assume, they didn´t say specific). Reservations are DEFINITELY recommended because of the limited hours, and the server having to remain at each table. So its a great dining experience, not just eating, but being entertained savoring each taste different from another. Great place!
