So a belle heard that the Melting Pot was one of the best spots to have a foodie experience in Atlanta, so we had to try it. The sis and I visited the Midtown location, which is in the heart of the city, not too far from one of our fave places–the Alliance.
Melting Pot has an intimate atmosphere that is perfect for a girls night out. The sis and I felt so special as we were tucked away in a cozy booth trying to decide on our selections. We opted for the four course feature, and I decided to try some drinks.
Although you see my smile, I didn’t know how this drink would be y’all! I was so scared to try this Fiery Pineapple Margarita, as I am a tried and true belle. If I try it AND it’s true, I don’t like to leave it. But y’all know, variety is the spice of life, and I shole enjoyed this tasty drink that was outfitted with cayenne….YES cayenne pepper! The sweetness of the pineapple and the hint of chipotle gave me life chile!
Interestingly, fondue is the star of the show and started off the first course. We chose a new selection as our cheese fondue. It consisted of fontina, kase butterkase (a German cheese), and goat cheese. When I tell y’all this cheese had us over the moon I mean it honey. Artisan breads and fruit were served alongside the cheese; Tamika and I went in on this creamy delicacy!!
We both had house salads,which were your basic salads, so no complaints here. Moving along to the GOOD stuff 😉
Everyone should smile a little with a Sunshine Sangria between courses. I love sweet drinks and this drink was that and then some. It was almost too sweet that I forgot liquor was in it! One thing about The Melting Pot is their presentation. Can’t you see how pretty this drink is? The fruit was fresh as well which was a GREAT thing!
Didn’t I tell ya about the presentation? Even raw food looks purty! The Melting Pot has various cooking styles that include broths, wines, and various seasonings. We chose the Coq au Vin, a burgundy wine that is infused with various herbs and spices. I had the Land and Sea and Tamika had the French Quarter meal (minus the spice of course). After placing the food in the pot, alongside veggies like potatoes and broccoli, we chatted and waited for the food to cook. Our taste buds did not steer us wrong!
Tamika raved about the andouille sausage and I was in love with my food. I killed those mushrooms! We received various dipping sauces that complemented the meats quite well. We were both in awe at the curry like sauce that wasn’t spicy. Trust that our tastebuds went into overdrive!
The fourth course was TRULY the star of the show….DESSERT! The sis and I argued over who would choose the chocolate. I won since Tamika chose the cheese. We settled on a rich chocolate with toffee in it. When I tell ya this chocolate was high quality and unbelievable, I mean it!! I love sweets so I was dancing as I ate my chocolate fondue. Rice Krispie treats, Oreo crusted marshmallows, strawberries, bananas, brownies, blondies, and pound cake were served with the fondue. I really enjoyed the brownies
The service was wonderful…absolutely wonderful! Tamika and I enjoy going to places where they KNOW the menu, treat you like family, and go over and beyond! Our night ended with 2 roses for 2 special belles! If you’re looking for a great place to dine that serves up good food and a killer ambiance, then The Melting Pot should definitely be on your radar!
