Day Two Seventy Four - Fondue @ Swizz

For a city offering such a plethora of dining options, it surprises me that there are so few fondue restaurants around town and even fewer that take bookings...weird right?

Last night I met up with a group of friends for dinner at Swizz, a Swiss restaurant located in Hell's Kitchen featuring a selection of fondues -- cheese, broth, and chocolate, along with traditional Raclette style cheese and salads, appetizers, and entrees. But we came for the big pots of melted cheese! Always a fun group dinner on these cold autumnal and wintery nights.

What did we have?

We split their traditional fondue -- a mixture of Gruyere and Emmenthal cheeses and their Provencal which had herbs included in the melted pot of cheesy goodness. These were accompanied by cubed pieces of bread, along with apples, broccoli, and sauteed mushrooms per our request.

I found the traditional Fondue somewhat simple and plain but enjoyed their Provencal quite a bit, perfect for a chilly fall evening of catch up with girlfriends! The non fondue options seemed decent, we all split a few Greek Salads were equally delish, but I think this is a restaurant that's about their melted cheese.

A fun place to go to enjoy fondue which is hard not to enjoy right? But the atmosphere lacks energy, I think it could be a great place with a little jazzing up! That being said, if you want a melted cheese fix or want a cute date place or a good place to get together with girlfriends, this is a good locale.
