Recently, Joonbug decided to stop by the Melting Pot in Hoboken, NJ. Though the chain is pretty much iconic, this location is known for supporting the Hoboken community through things like Breast Cancer Awareness month events, hosting the Hoboken Comedy festival and hosting unique outdoor dining experiences (such as "dine with your dog"). We wanted to check in with them to see what's currently taking place!
As we entered the restaurant overlooking a glittering view of the Empire State Building across the Hudson river, we were greeted by a massive wall of delicious wines. The sleek and modern interior is a great place to find refuge from the hustle and bustle of the area. This restaurant is always infused with the tempting aromas of cheese and chocolate! Various menu options include Cheese Fondue (cheese fondue is made with unique and seasonal ingredients or your choice of any of their other flavorful cheeses); Salad (options include Caesar, Spinach Mushroom, California); Entrée (your choice of one of their showcased entrées includes a variety of steak, chicken and seafood accompanied by homemade dipping sauces and vegetables); Chocolate Fondue; consisting of white, chocolate, dark chocolate and assorted fruits such as strawberries and deserts to dip in the chocolate. Our favorite is the Ying & Yang dessert fondue which includes both white and dark chocolates (pictured below).
As you may know, Hoboken, NJ was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy and right now they're offering a special fondue feast which includes a tasty four course dinner in a warm and inviting atmosphere for $35 per person which runs through November 11th.
There's Guinness, Sam Adams on tap, Single Malt Scotch and various other options. They also have exciting monthly events. Join the Melting Pot in November for a glamorous "Ladies Night Out" and find out how you can enter for a chance to win a $2,500 Melting Pot gift card, a necklace from Tiffany's and a swag bag from Grey Goose (sounds great).
