A must try!
This restaurant is a mash of ideas and themes that have been reworked and redeveloped over time to make a unique style not seen in many other restaurants. Firstly the place has an old 1960/70 style and feel to it, in a chalet type building. Secondly, it used to be a go-go bar where the swinging community used to hang out. Each table had a phone, to call the others, just in case the blonde with the Afro caught your eye. These phone are mostly functional, but only the more intoxicated patrons or bored children use them, but they are fun to try out. There are some nooks and crannies, where the tables are tucked into, and even the mysterious private room, where all the fun happens...you just have to close the curtains or wait for the secret signal to enter. Very weird indeed...
Not only do you get a cool atmosphere, but the service is excellent.
Apparently there is a choice of 16 or so fondue meats, including chicken, beef, seafood, alligator, venison, elk, rattlesnake, kangaroo. I had the fondue dinner with chicken and beef (Nice and safe). I'm not big into the seafood, so I stayed away from that (but heard it was good) and there were some exotics meats out of stock, so that was not the best option.
The first course was a soup/salad. The soup was satisfactory, and I was told the salad dressing is excellent, so next item I will order salad. The second was a choice of cheese or oil fondue with bread or vegetables. Both were excellent, and it was nice to have a large group to try them both. My group asked for multiple bread baskets to clean up the cheese (somebody would have licked the pot clean if we were not in a restaurant). The oil is an olive oil with a anchovy paste, which is not noticeable. I hate anchovy, but it was excellent.
The third course is the meat. You can either have a broth fondue, or a hot stone. The hot stone is exactly that, a hot stone, which you cook the meat on with the aid of garlic butter mix. You can then dip it in your sauce of choice, which range from teryaki to honey mustard and aioli type.
Lastly is dessert, melted toblerone ( chocolate with small nuts) and fruit.
I ended up feeling very full, and the cost was $44, with no drinks or tips. Dinner was longer at 3 hours, but between the food cooking and playing with the phones, it went by very fast.
I will go here again. You have to apparently reserve a couple weeks ahead.
