"With the success of the Bedford/Burlington and Framingham Melting Pot locations, it's clear that the Boston area loves our unique fondue dining concept," says Renée Torres, Managing Partner of this Melting Pot location. "Fondue is fun and interactive, and we're looking forward to bringing something different to Boston's vibrant dining scene. Our Back Bay location and close proximity to The Theatre District will make The Melting Pot a convenient spot for a variety of different occasions: dinner out with friends or family, a special occasion, romantic evening, dessert after a show, or a business meeting."

The menu will feature gourmet nibbles such as lobster quesadillas, chicken and beef sate, seared ahi tuna, smoked salmon bruschetta, garlic Dijon shrimp, and crab cakes. The location is planning to host a happy hour with reduced bar food pricing.
