We thought fondue was a campy, retro sort of thing until we discovered this place, a favorite among "date night" couples. (Romance oozes from this place; the waiters will even take your picture and leave it for you in a little picture frame at the door, if you like.) We love going here and ordering tasty bites that we can dip into melted cheese and yummy broth, a la shabu-shabu restaurants we remember from back east. We recommend starting with the Chef Salad rather than the appetizer course, just to make that dunking experience all the more exciting once you start. Entrée courses of either meat or seafood cooked in boullion are tasty, with chicken, two types of beef, shrimp, and ravioli. Tangy and sweet sauces accompany each order, and vegetables are always heaped on as sides. For dessert, don't pass up the basic milk chocolate fondue, served with strawberries, pineapple, brownie bites, and little chunks of cheesecake. What's more romantic (or tasty) than dunking food into pots of yummy stuff?
