Battle of the Dishes

Battle of the Fondue: Windsor vs. The Arrogant Butcher

Fondue has been around forever, but where do you go to get it aside from the Melting Pot? Being a native Wisconsinite, that was the first thing I was asking about when coming the southwest. (Yes, we love our cheese and beer!)

Plenty of places around the metro-Phoenix area have fondue as an appetizer -- even though it could easily be a meal for two. Fondue is typically melted cheese with some sort of bread on the side, usually a soft pretzel. Of course, some restaurants have taken that idea and run with it, giving their dishes a twist to make their fondue unique.

This week, we got cheesy, putting The Arrogant Butcher up against Windsor.
