Urban Fondue

If you find yourself over in the NW 21st area, make sure to swing by Urban Fondue for a truly unique dining experience.  They have an array of cheese fondues as well as numerous meat, vegetarian, and seafood fondue options.  However, make sure to save enough room for the ultimate dessert fondue experience — the raspberry swirl and banana’s foster fondues were my personal favorite.  Oh, and did I mention the drinks?  Bartini, which is adjacent to Urban Fondue, features over 100 creative and stunningly delicious martinis.  So next time you are in the neighborhood, make sure to stop by!
