I was lucky enough to be able to go to the Melting Pot in White Plains, NY. We have been to this one before, and I must say, I love the Melting Pot. If I could I could be there all the time. The atmosphere, the quality of food, the time warp you go in and lose time, it’s all wonderful. It’s just different, you can’t get that kind of dining experience anyplace else.
I took my husband, and left the kids at home for my birthday! It was a nice way of spending time just by ourselves (hadn’t happened in over a year) and I can just recharge as a person and not as a Mom. Plus meals can last 2+ hours and there is no way in heck the kids were going to last that long. So thank you Mom for watching them!
We arrived at our table, in a little nook, and their was a birthday card waiting for me! It was super sweet and unexpected! Everyone that was working there that day signed it. It’s something I’m going to save, because one other person got me a card for my birthday and that was my mother.
Cory and I went with the Big Night Out French Edition! They just rolled out the menu for that on Sept 20th and I was all for trying it out, sounded delicious to the both of us. I’ll list the courses and what was in each one.
First Course: Fondue a la France:
A rich, smooth combination of baby Brie, Fontina, GruyÃ¨re and Raclette cheeses accented with Nueskeâ€™s bacon, onions, white-truffle cream and fresh chives.
Second Course: Salade NiÃ§oise (ni – swaz):
Our version of this timeless classic combining haricots verts, tomatoes, hard-boiled egg and NiÃ§oise olives topped with a tangy Shallot Vinaigrette
Third Course: Fondue Fusion. Our Cooking Medium was the Coq au Vin which has flavors of fresh herbs, mushrooms,
garlic, spices and burgundy wine. The food to cook in the Fondue Fusion is:
Cold-Water Lobster Tail, Filet Mignon, Peppercorn-Crusted NY Strip, Chicken Roasted-Garlic
Shrimp, Maple Leaf Farms Duck al Orange, Ratatouille & Goat Cheese Ravioli and Fresh Vegetables.
Fourth Course:White Chocolate Creme Brulee:
A fondue version of the classic French dessert including white chocolate and caramelized sugar.
It took us about 2 and a half hours to eat our way through the courses. They were all delicious! We were amazed about how tasty the cheese course was! We just loved the flavor and the smokiness of it! The salad was amazing, I never had anything like it before. The main course is always fab! I even tried 2 mushrooms, and I NEVER eat mushrooms! I don’t know if I’ll eat them again, but they were okay. I didn’t die haha. I loved all of the dips they have for that course though. It’s just fun cooking your own food. The dessert was DIVINE! Cory almost went to heaven when he dipped the brownie in, it was so good. He was gushing. The general manager also came and talked to me, the White Chocolate Creme Brulee may become a main stay on the menu. I hope that is true because it was heavenly, and I would look forward to having that again.
You can watch a video I took of all the courses and also see Cory singing Happy Birthday to me.
