Before the Fondue of Foodies Tweetup last week, I perused The Melting Pot's website to take a look at their menu and other upcoming events. When I've dined at The Melting Pot in the past, the bill is usually more expensive than what I can pay on a regular basis. So, I was happy to see on their website the specials the restaurant runs every week - in this case, their Boston location specifically.
The Melting Pot in Boston has several deals during the week, but three very notable events are the Wine Down Wednesdays, Fondue & a Flick and Bar Menu Items & Happy Hour. Here's the lowdown:
Wine Down Wednesdays: Two glasses of wine paired with food for $25 per person. Menu changes weekly, but July 1st's is Traditional Swiss Cheese Fondue, Garlic Dijon Shrimp,Smoked Salmon Bruschetta, and Amaretto Meltdown Chocolate Fondue paired with Maschio Prosecco and St. Supery Moscato. Event is 4-6 p.m.
Fondue & a Flick: Cheese fondue, salad, chocolate fondue and AMC theatre tickets for $30 per person (includes Loews Boston Common, Loews Harvard Square, and Chestnut Hill theaters). You can also add an individual entree for $15 (not the best part of the deal, if you ask me). Valid all day Sunday through Thursday and for reservations before 6 p.m. on Fridays.
Bar Menu Items & Happy Hour: 50 percent off in the bar area from 4 to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. A beverage purchase is required, and the menu includes non-fondue items such as Lobster Quesadillas, Savory Sate Skewers, Seared Ahi Tuna, Smoked Salmon Bruschetta, Garlic Dijon Shrimp, Kobe Beef Sliders and several different flatbreads.
