There is a new spot in town! Well, new to me. I go through Living Social/Groupon phases; meaning, sometimes I think everything looks like a great deal and I can’t wait to try 5789 new restaurants, and sometimes I can’t seem to find anything appealing. Well one of the best deals I have experienced was when Danny and I went to That Fondue Place in Edgewater, NJ.
It wasn’t a typical set up of what one would think when going out for fondue. There are not many fondue restaurants in our area but the couple of places we have gone, it is a darker, intimate setting and on the fancier side.
Right away, there was something different about “That Fondue Place.” We were greeted right away into a large room filled with tables and bright lighting. The servers acted as hostesses as well but you would not notice a lack in service. Our groupon allowed us one appetizer option, one entree and one dessert. Definitely remember to bring your wine or beverage of choice because it is BYOB.
We had an amazing Bruchetta cheese fondue as the appetizer and this was served with a variety of breads. It was something different and we had not seen it offered anywhere else. For the entree, you pick not only a cooking style, but also the food that you will be dipping! So we went with a Coq Au Vin (seasoned beef broth with burgundy wine and spices,) shrimp, pork, chicken and filet. They also have ravioli as a choice but I lost that battle with my husband 😉
You end the meal with an amazing dessert fondue. This was by far the hardest decision because there were so many options that would probably have been equally as satisfying! Hands down, they have something for everyone. Campfire (marshmallows, graham crackers and melted chocolate), Cookies n Cream, Chocolate Knockout, Chocolate Cheesecake, seriously? Next time I want to just go for dessert!
All in all, it was a great experience and we left not only extremely full, but extremely satisfied 🙂
