The Velvet Tango Room Cleveland
This classic fondue has been a staple at the Velvet Tango Room for years. Owner Paulius Nasvytis encourages patrons who order it to follow traditional fondue etiquette: "If a man's chunk of crusty French bread falls into the pot, he has to buy the next round of drinks. If a woman's piece falls in, she has to kiss the man to her left."
