Ate gluten-free At Melting Pot

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We went for a celebration dinner, there were nine of us eating out of three pots. I was very worried how this was going to work. I was told the pot on our end would be the gluten-free pot. We started with spinach and artichoke cheese fondue. They brought us sour apples and some veggies, luckily I was able to get several bites before my mom dipped her bread in our pot. :( My husband saw her and tried to get her to stop. She said she was sorry and then said you can still eat that, I only dipped it over here. :o I told her it was ok, I had plenty.

We ordered steak and chicken and had veggies with it too and just got the oil to fry it. I had thought they had gluten-free flours for breading, they don't. Oh well. It was still good. The only problem with fondue is I had to keep cooking pieces for my son because he was starving and it took me forever to get something for myself.

For dessert we got banana's foster and they brought us a fruit plate with it. That was amazing! Highly recommended.

The wait staff was good and very helpful.

I'm going there for Valentine's. I've been told they keep gluten-free fondue pots seperately and I'm going to be sure to call ahead and remind them at the restaurant. It's nice to know they are set up for it though.

The Melting Pot by us (White Plains NY, walking distance actually) is a gluten-free heaven. The have a very knowledgeable staff, use corn starch on your cheese, provide corn chips instead of bread, they know which sauces are ok. Basically I can eat 95% of what I used to get there before going gluten-free and not worry about a thing!

You might want to check the chips at your local Melting Pot. I don't think they are safe.

You're right! According to the menu they are not. However... I ate a ton of them and was fine. Now I'm only gluten-free sensitive not celiac so maybe the chips only have a chance of CC.

Hmmm... I'm very sensitive and have had the chips a number of times with no reaction. I think the first time I had them bring a bag out and I looked at the ingredients. Its been a while since we've gone (a year or 2?) so maybe they changed suppliers. Of course the veggies and cut up apples that they give you as dippers are a more healthy option. :-)

They've been our standby fancy/celebration restaurant for years since they are the safest place we can get a full meal (appetizer, salad, main course and desert) without alot of fuss and careful checking.

It may be that they don't know the official " status" of the chips because they are not made by them. Or that different melting pots buy from different suppliers.

My BIL is trying to get a gluten-free certification for his restaurant. He has to have a complete list of all the ingredients of any product he buys that is pre made, like mayo or ketchup. It's probably because they don't mKe their own chips and don't check and re- check with the manufacturer.
