In Open Table
By Laurie Wilson
Fondue is the ultimate sharing dish. Debuting in the 18th century in Switzerland, this is a special experience, often enjoyed as part of a romantical celebration. But you don’t need to wait for your anniversary; fondue is a fun-loving, fork-twirling dish any day of the week, whether you’re banishing the winter blues with your boo or looking for an interactive meal to take the awkward out of a first date. At these top restaurants for fondue, you’ll find everything from the classic to those with an Asian influence, and a chocolate version on steroids. Even if you’re not near one of these spots, OpenTablecan help you find a restaurant to satisfy your craving for romance.
The Chalet and Clubhouse at the Fairmont Golf Course, Whistler, British Columbia
Fondue with a view. The Chalet and Clubhouse is the quintessential ski (and golf!) destination — a cozy spot with a crackling log fire and an alpine-inspired menu, including fondue. Go for the three-course fondue dinner: cheese fondue with vegetables, followed by the broth-based fondue Chinoise served with beef tenderloin, prawns, and salmon and keep that snowball rolling with a rich chocolate fondue for dessert (pictured above and below). Make a reservation at The Chalet and Clubhouse at the Fairmont Golf Course.
KAIDO, Miami, Florida
Located in Miami’s fashionable Design District, this Tokyo-lounge-inspired-restaurant is known for its Uni fondue, a stylish dish and a looker. Expect a warm velvety sauce, thanks to the blend of uni and aged Parmesan as well as herbs and spices. It’s accompanied by seafood and vegetables. You can also go fashion-forward and put designs on your own fondue by adding caviar or King crab. Make a reservation at KAIDO.
