The Melting Pot to Bring Unique Dining Experience to The Providence Place Mall

PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Melting Pot of Providence is in the final stages of construction and is scheduled to open September 24th. Located on St. Francis Street, in The Providence Place Mall, The Melting Pot is a dinner-only fondue restaurant that is locally-owned and operated.

This Melting Pot location will encompass more than 5,500 square feet with seating for over 150 guests. In addition to its upscale-casual dining environment, the restaurant will also feature a secluded lover's lane seating area that creates a truly intimate atmosphere for parties of 2, and its private banquet/party room will accommodate group events and activities for up to 34 guests. This room also features fully functional plug & play AV equipment that will be fabulous for any sales presentation, rehearsal dinner or large party event.

"We are excited to give the residents of Rhode Island and South Eastern Massachusetts the chance to dip into something different," says Renée Torres, proprietor of this location. "Fondue is not only delicious; it's an interactive dining experience like no other. We're looking forward to bringing something unique to Providence's dining scene. The restaurant's location right off of I-95 makes The Melting Pot a convenient spot for a variety of occasions: dinner out with friends or family, a special occasion, romantic evening, dinner after a day of shopping at the mall, or a business meeting." Parking at The Providence Place Mall is only $1 for every 3 hours and the restaurant is within walking distance of the Amtrak Station, The Westin Hotel, The Dunkin' Donuts Center, and WaterFire.

Because of its great location for business/local patrons and tourist travel, the Providence restaurant will be one of just a few Melting Pots throughout the country that will offer a non-fondue bar menu to complement an extensive wine list (hand picked by the on site sommelier, it features approximately 180 selections of wine from around the world), beers, and specialty cocktails. 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.

At The Melting Pot, fondue becomes a memorable four-course dining experience where guests can truly "dip into something different." Following a creamy cheese fondue and lively salad, guests choose from four flavorful fondue cooking styles and a variety of entrées including filet mignon, lobster, breast of chicken, duck, shrimp, salmon and more. Dessert features mouthwatering chocolate fondue served with dipping items including fresh strawberries, cheesecake, marshmallows, pound cake and brownies. The Melting Pot offers a relaxed atmosphere, private tables, fine wines, attentive service and signature fondue dinners.
