My Yummy Sunday!

Last Sunday (the 29th) I was able to attend the D/FW Blogger Meet up at The Melting Pot in Southlake, Texas. I was treated to yum-o food, spectacular wine and great conversation with my fabulous new blogger buddies. I had been to a fondue restaurant before, so I knew what to expect, but The Melting Pot knocked my socks off! The restaurant itself has the neatest design, and we were in one of the private party rooms which was P-E-R-F-E-C-T for our little get-together.

The staff!!! Oh wow, the staff! They were so accommodating in every possible way. Sara, our server, could not have been more helpful. She was just lovely. Top notch, people!

We chose the 4-course meal option, Big Night Out, with cheese fondue, salad, entree and chocolate fondue each in the flavor and variety of our choosing. Now, of course, the chocolate was my favorite but it wasn't a runaway title, the cheese and entree came in a close second and third. They are all so good I am getting hungry just thinking about it - really! Here is a pic, courtesy of Donna @ Way More Homemade, of the dessert tray! Jealous, much??I know that was mean of me, huh? Sorry!

In case you are looking for a fun Girls' Night Out or special occasion dinner, let me recommend The Melting Pot. Yes, it is pricey, but there are options to make this restaurant a more frugal choice:
The Entertainment Book here has coupons for 20% off dinner for 2 or BOGO
Become a fan of The Melting Pot on Facebook here & get a FREE Chocolate Fondue coupon

Have you ever been to The Melting Pot, or are you planning a trip there now? I would love to hear what you think.
