So, Melissa wanted to do some ‘Restaurant Week’ thing where you go to fancy, expensive restaurants and pay slightly-less fancy, slightly-less expensive prices. We went to the Melting Pot this evening, which is a fondue chain with a location right down the road in Reston.

It was pretty good, for fondue. Personally I love fondue as a home dish, but I’m not sure I get the point of paying to cook your own food. It was a nice evening out though, and I have to admit it was very good, fancy fondue.

We also got warned about 50 times total not to touch the clearly-labeled hot surface in the middle of the table. Funny, the printed warning, red light, and common sense didn’t give it away. Got to love living in a litigious society. There were no warnings printed on the other hot object at the table, pictured.
