Yesterday I decided to check out this little fondue restaurant I had been hearing about in the “Nolita” section of the city. It was definitely tucked away in a corner for no one to see, but was a fun experience. Supposedly it was taken off a french restaurant. This restaurant was tight for cash and there is some sort of wine tax in France so they serve it in baby bottles to get away with not paying. This restaurant took the idea. Very weird to drink wine out of a baby bottle. White, red–it doesn’t matter. I decided to pour it in a glass after one “suck”.
They offered two different options-meat or cheese. I was a bit disappointed that we didn’t get an array of cheeses or that the only type of meat we got with the cheese option was cold ham. I’m a food snob. What can I say? Brian and I thought it would have been a nice touch for them to have seared the ham or at least heated them up a bit. The cheese fondue was tasty and surprisingly not too heavy on the tummy. The chocolate fondue with fruit was delicicious, but I thought they could have provided some strawberries! Oh well.
