    Blue Cheese Fondue with Honey

    We had originally made reservations to have dinner at "Honey" but when that fell through we decided to make our way here.

    The Bourgeous Pig is more of a lounge than restaurant with very small tables, chairs and booth like settes. It's quite an interesting setting which begins with the "character" out front. He looked like a skinny version of Johnny Depp, hat and glasses included. He was a really friendly guy and approached us to ask how many were in our party. He said he had a table large enough for our party of 6 and would hold it until we were all there.

    Upon entering the "Pig" we felt we were entering a scene from HELL with its dark walls!! There are small tables and chairs scattered throughout the lounge with only two areas large enough for a party of 6-8. The walls are dark, very dark, with a beautiful hand blown Murano chandelier as the centerpiece.

    It was a nice experience with some really good friends, wine and fondue!!

    Favorite Dish: There is a very large selection of drinks which are quite unique with every combination made with either wine, beer or champagne. The menu is small with 4-5 variations of fondue, cheese platters and appetizers!

    We ordered three bottles of wine, two red, one white for the table which were quite nice. We were here for fondue and the waitress graciously made a few suggestions. The Blue Cheese Fondue with Honey was exceptional as well as the 5 Italian Cheese Fondue (not quite as good). The Fondues each came with a large selection of breads, fruits, olives, roasted peppers and some potatoes. We also ordered the Brie wrapped with filo dough which is a favorite cheese of mine!!

    We skipped the dessert as we were all very much stuffed from all the cheese fondue!
