Fondue is Back at Trestle on Tenth, NYC Craft Beerfest, Whiskey Benefit for Sandy Relief

Fondue is back at Trestle on Tenth!                 

Trestle on Tenth’s annual Fondue Sundays kick off this Sunday, December 2nd - just in time for the winter chill. Served in traditional Swiss style, the fondue ($25) is a bubbling blend of spicy Gruyère, nutty Emmentaler and creamy Vacherin cheeses served alongside speck, bündnerfleisch, steamed potatoes, cornichons and baguette- for just $24. Paired with the Swiss wine of the grape variety Chasselas, black tea or shots of Kirschwasser - and some good company - it is the Swiss solution to keeping cozy this cold season.  

Fondue Sunday Dinners will run every Sunday through the end of February 2013. Trestle on Tenth is located at 242 10th Avenue, (212) 645-5659.
