Others--say, entire dinners devoted to melted cheese--are not.
That’s why Maman is resurrecting the ’60s fondue night.
But it’s the gooey cheese that will really make us regulars. Once a month (for two consecutive nights), Maman stays open late and serves up fondue with all the fixings ($65, prix fixe).
First comes a round of gorgeous little canapés. They’re light, sweet and the perfect lead-in to the main event: a warm pot of three cheeses (Comté, Emmental and Beaufort) with homemade croutons and roasted veggies on the side. (Fact: Brussels sprouts are the world’s best dippers.)
The next dinners are scheduled for February 10 and 11, and spots book up quickly, so email firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations, like, yesterday.
