Chocolate Fondue at MoRoCo

After our huge meal at One, we decided to go for a stroll on the Yorkville area. It was a gorgeous afternoon, and the walk would do well to help with digestion!  Of course, all that is moot when your walk takes you into another restaurant. And not just any resturant, but a DESSERT venue. OMG - such decadence.  
Some of us decided to go the safe route and go for an espresso...which comes with a truffle, and it should! Way overpriced for a bad cup of espresso, and the chocolate didn't do much salvage it. 
I had a blueberry ice tea...and that was awful too...the only thing I thought they have ANYTHING decent in this place?  
We decided to order the fondue. It arrived and looked fantastic. There were pineapple chunks, strawberries, bananas (yuck), homemade marshmallows and madeleines. The chocolate was nice and rich...good temperature and stayed heated throughout our stay. The fruits were fruity (and that is all I can say about them), fresh-ish, and not stellar in presentation. The homemade marshmallows were good, but the madeleins were uber disappointing...soggy, crumbly, and day-old. Yuck. I didn't know you could ruin a fondue, but they found a way.
