Fondue in Toronto??

I just can't believe there isn't GREAT cheese and meat fondue in Toronto...any recommendations or ideas?

  1. Cheeseworks on Bathurst has cheese fondue, but, in my opinion it isn't great. They have "fondue" nights but you can do it regular menu too.

    1. And I can't believe it is so hard to find polyester beige safari leisure suits, yellow tinted aviator glasses, and pet rocks. I guess some things are just meant to be missed...

      Just kidding (sort of).

        Couldn't disagree more, but I do understand the humor.
        Fondue isn't a fad in many counties, we just made it that way here in NA. Unfortunately the only decent one I know of in the city is in my kitchen every couple months....and I serve it with clams casino, oysters Rockefeller and lobster Newburg but I stay away from the melon and prosciutto.

          Lobster Newburg!
          There's something that I'd like to find again.

          I find it a little funny that this question seems to come up annually in the dead of summer. The Swiss consider fondue to be the quintessential winter dish and would never serve it this time of year (there is a fondue specialty restaurant in Gruyeres that runs year round for the tourists, a Swiss friend said that seeing people eating fondue in July was one of the weirdest things he had ever seen)

            What's wrong with a little 70's action anyway? I did LOL at your post though :) it's still very "in" in France, Montreal and Quebec...where I just came from. I just want to go out and have the "due" man.

          2. Le Rendez-Vous on Prince Arthur used to have about a half dozen choices of different (and each tasty and generously portioned, wonderfully balanced gooey) cheese fondues. I have never found one place to come close to it since its passing 10+ years ago.

            1. Caren's usually has a cheese one. It's on their cheese menu as opposed to the regular dinner menu. It's really good.

              1. The Barberian Steak house has a cheese fondue after 10 PM.
                SO does Art Square Cafe opposite AGO.
                I haven't tried both.

                  Barberians also serves beef fondue after 10.
