Our Story

About us

Serendipity 3, the legendary New York City restaurant and general store, founded in 1954, as one of the city’s truly unique dining experiences.
Beginning with Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, Grace Kelly and Cary Grant in the 1950’s, continuing with a celebrity following that includes Cher, Candice Bergen, Melanie Griffith and Ron Howard, the restaurant continues to attract the newest crop of hot young celebrities such as Beyoncé, Ryan Reynolds, Selena Gomez and Kim Kardashian.

At this cheery, kitschy East Side family spot, sandwiches, salads and burgers merely set you up for the main course: dessert. The trademarked Frrrozen Hot Chocolate—a brain-freezing chocolate slushie—deserves its reputation; the massive beast should be shared. Given the size of the Coward’s Portion of the Outrageous Banana Split, we’re guessing the full-size version comes in a trough.

The Frozen Hot Chocolate. Its like drinking a candy bar and is fantastic. We had reservations on a weeknight so the wait wasn't bad but I've heard the lines can be long. The menu is figuratively and literally big (it's like 2 feet tall) with tons of options so you're bound to find something good but I'd recommend to focus on the desserts and try this place out...

This small, cozy restaurant offers the best desserts in town. Their Frozen Hot Chocolate is to die for, but their brownie sundae is just amazing as well! If you love desserts, this is your go-to place for sure!
