Westerly’s Ocean House resort hosted a first-of-its-kind pop-up culinary concept, which began December 1, the Veuve Clicquot Fondue Express. Visitors were able to book the culinary and Champagne experience beginning December 1, which accommodates couples or groups of up to four people. A portion of all proceeds will go to the Ocean House Fund for Charitable Giving, to help children and families in need. A three-course menu and Champagne offerings from Veuve Clicquot were hosted in the comfort and novelty of a luxury gondola. Although similar concepts can be found in Europe, the Fondue Express is believed to be the first known gondola dining experience in North America. “The Fondue Express is an example of the extraordinary and creative experiences available only at Ocean House,” said Daniel A. Hostettler, President and Group Managing Director of Ocean House Management. “We are confident that the Fondue Express will be an exceptional and memorable addition to our festive holiday and wintertime activities,” he added.
