About the restaurant
The Melting Pot Restaurant in Charlotte is where fun is cooked up fondue style.

Our Charlotte restaurant is located in the Midtown neighborhood. Close to all Uptown hotels, Bank of America Stadium, Spectrum Center, Blumenthal Performing Arts center.

The experience is great in a group and romantic for couples. The intimate location provides a casually elegant, intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale.

We went to McNinch House for a special occasion. This is an experience that exceeded my expectations. As someone who is well traveled and has eaten in numerous dining establishments (30+ countries and 49 US states), this is a place that could compete for a nomination in James Beard awards in my opinion. The service, food, wine, and staff was excellent. The attention to detail was exceptional. Plates, silverware, and glasses were meticulously polished and tied to the design cues of the era. A step back in time to the fine dining experience of the early 20th century, with more modern cooking techniques and products including the wine pairing. Overall a great experience, even more so for someone who appreciates early 20th century fine dining (I'm looking at the Titanic fan crowd).

About the restaurant
The setting at Luce is romantic. The Murano Lights, Venetian Plaster and Travertine floors create an exclusive dining ambiance. Luce means “Light” in Italian and the restaurant clearly “glows”
Luce provides an ideal dining experience whether you stop in for a quick lunch or settling in for a full course dinner and fine selection of extensive wines from Italy.
The attentive and knowledgeable staff always provides impeccable service allowing you to sit back and enjoy your dining experience.
Conveniently located in the Truist Center in the business district of Charlotte’s Center City.
