The Melting Pot for Chocolate Fondue

We love eateries where dining with your hands is encouraged, which is why The Melting Pot tops our list. A decadently warm pot of milk chocolate, marshmallow and graham crackers arrives at the table. Couple that with strawberries, bananas, brownies, Rice Krispie treats, cheesecake and cherries dipped in this rich fondue and you may not go back to the traditional s'more ever again. Come for dinner first, or just indulge in dessert.

Hours: Mon.-Thurs., 5-10 p.m.; Fri., 5-11 p.m.; Sat., 3-11 p.m.; Sun, 3-10 p.m.
Cost: Chocolate Fondue, $9.50/person
