I am going to a BYOB fondue restaurant that has a prix fixe menu, which I pasted below.
I am not sure what my date or I are going to choose, so I am trying to figure out what wine to bring that will taste decent with any of the choices. Any suggestions?

1st course:

Comes with Green Salad & House-Baked Soft Crouton
Choice of:
Cheddar/Monterey
Soprano (18 Months Old Parmesan and White American)
Devil’s Whiff (Pepperoncino and Cheddar/ Red Wine)
Pyrenees (Swiss , White Wine and Nutmeg Classical light)
***
2nd course:
4 Homemade Dipping Sauces
Oil : Canola or Veggie Broth
Choice of Marinated Meat:
Chicken Breast
Hanger Steak
Pork Tenderloin
***
3rd course:
Fruit Tray
Dark or Milk Chocolate

If anybody is interested, this is the link the restaurant: http://www.taureaunyc.com

    Because of the richness of the cheeses and meats, I'd recommend a fuller bodied red like a Bordeaux. This menu doesn't have too many lighter or high acid dishes, so I think the wine would be fine with what you end up having (the salad may not pair so well however).

      When in doubt like you seem to be, a Riesling or a Beaujolais (NOT Nouveau) are likely to cover the bases nicely.
