One reason CL suspects fondue might be in your future: Tampa-based Melting Pot announced Wednesday that its Carrollwood restaurant has a fresh look. The location, owned and operated by Melting Pot founders and brothers Mark and Mike Johnston, plans to host a five-day grand reopening from July 10 to 14.
"We've revamped the interior design scheme of the restaurant with updated décor, lighting and music," Mark said in a statement. "We look forward to serving our loyal fondue fans in our refreshed space with an even more inviting atmosphere."
The celebration, which is set to showcase special events in honor of the restaurant's 36-year anniversary, will offer a throwback $36 four-course dinner menu, which revisits original Melting Pot dishes from 1981 to serve up their updated interpretations.
Locally, there are also Melting Pot franchises in St. Petersburg and Sarasota. But the Tampa outpost's doors are very much open for business.
