Hosting a fondue night. Pls I need suggestions

Hi all,
I received the Lazy Susan Fondue set and I was hoping to hosting my very first fondue night. I was thinking cheese and chocolate (no meat). Guests will BTOB and I'll provide the food. Should I make anything else beside? Some appetizers?
I will probably start surfing the net later and buy a fondue book, however I was hoping to get other advices (web-site-recipes-where to find the best cheese-etc...)

Thanks in advance for your help.

The Best Pizza in Brooklyn

La Villa is pretty good, although I think was expensive if compared to other pizzerias mentioned in this post. Just my 2cents.

The Best Pizza in Brooklyn

Jcbroder,
I went to the Bleecker St. Pizza. Place was ok, and the pizza was good...I'll say comparable to Grimaldi's.

Sushi Samba review Vote: 2

I went to the above restaurant 2 weeks ago on a Saturday. The place is located by Bleecker Street. I called a couple of days early to make reservation for 5 at 8pm. 8pm was not available and I pushed it to 8:30pm.
We got there at 8:20pm, the table was not ready. No big deal, the guys were still trying to find a parking spot. The place seemed overly crowded and did not had a waiting area so we waited outside. When the party was all in (they do not let you take the table otherwise)we went in. It was 8:45pm, the hostess suggest us that the table was almost ready. After 2m they bring us upstairs where there is a open terrace (very nice in the summer) covered with plastic tents and a few of those warming lamps. I asked if we would be comfortable since it was windy, they reply yes. They seat us by the little bar in the middle of the room, we asked if it was possible to be moved and they said no: "We are always booked on Saturday, we got you the table, don't we?". Fine, but we were uncomfortable and cold (we ate we our own coat). The drinks were great, the food was limited. I mean the sushi was good but we were expecting more "samba" in the menu. We ordered several things, I personally had the chicken teryaki which was really good. The waiter was inattentive and rude. The table had no table cloath and it was not too clean (I know, I am picky but I hate filth!). We left and paied $300. Too expensive for some sushi and 5 cocktail ($80 just in drinks!). The place was wayyyy to crowded and definetely good as a lounge and to hang out but not really to eat.
We were hungry and ended having dessert at a french cafe' close by.
Hope this review helps other. :))

Best Italian restaurant in NYC

Hi all,
it is my very first post and I think it will be controversial...sort of opening a can of warms...
I am searching for the best italian restaurant in NYC.
By best I am refering to
1. Clean
2. Truly Italian (what is with spaghetti and meatballs?? The do not do that in Italy!)
3. Great service and ambience
4. Cost is average or above, but a couple will not pay more than $200 (wine inclusive)
Thanks
