Kick off the weekend with melty cheese, toasty bread and some end-of-the-week beverages at Noir‘s Fondue Fridays. Just head for Harvard Square between 4:00 and 9:30pm to grab a table (in the safely-spaced dining room or out on the terrace under gas-powered heaters) and make like you’re enjoying an apres-ski snack. The piping hot, cheesy special feeds two for $15 but you can always add items from the full a la carte menu or cocktails from the drink list. Be sure to leave a little room for dessert — there’s vanilla bean crème brûlée and a cookie plate if you’re craving something sweet. Call 617.661.8090 to reserve a spot or feel free to pop-in on your Friday of choice. Add fondue to your 2021 to-do’s and enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures — cheese, bread, booze — in one delicious fell swoop.
