Boiled in Oil

The torture device was then brought out again so that the waiter could remove the oil, and we finished with an "original" dessert fondue ($8.95) of milk chocolate and peanuts in which to dip marshmallows, strawberries, cheesecake, bananas and pineapples.

When my wife noted that it would be an interesting first-date restaurant, I countered with the theory that a trip to the Melting Pot should definitely wait for the second date, because it forces a level of dexterity and cooperation that might have doomed our own courtship right at the start. So if you're still new to each other, maybe you ought to consider a nice art film at the Tivoli, saving the Melting Pot for after you've gone to a Jean-Claude Van Damme flick and are still speaking to each other. Or maybe stay home some Sunday night and watch a rerun of That '70s Show for a glimpse into the past and present of the joys of fondue.
