New York City, NY Edition: Serendipity 3
Serendipity 3 is the scene of a few movies, including Serendipity, where a couple meet shopping at Bloomingdales and later share a dessert at the restaurant. The restaurant is also known to have been frequented by Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol and First Lady Jackie O.
They are known for their famous frozen hot chocolate. Unfortunately, you can't make reservations for just dessert, so you have to wait in a crazy long line. We actually tried to go here one night, but the wait was too long and would've made us miss dinner, so we had to come back the second night. It was OK, though, while waiting, we got to check out Dylan's Candy Bar.
When it was our turn, we arrived at our table and placed an order for the frozen hot chocolate. Was it good? Yes. Was it great? It was OK. I didn't love the shaved chocolate, because it made for an odd texture. And I think I was expected a milkshake? This was less sweet than a milkshake. But, it's still tasty.
