Serendipity 3 Opens in Georgetown

Serendipity 3 Frrrozen Hot Chocolate in Georgetown D.C.

Serendipity 3 Frrrozen Hot Chocolate

Talk about timing.  I finish and shut close Carol Joynt’s just released memoir “Innocent Spouse” which has much ado about Nathans, the closed landmark saloon whose haunting memory brings a bit of discomfort now that I’ve read the book (review coming soon, but may I just throw in: I was thoroughly entranced.) and what do you know?  Serendipity 3, all the way from the big city of New York, opens its doors today.  Where Nathans used to be. Not that this is news. But … talk about timing.  When one door closes, another one opens. As they say. And life goes on. Out with the old and in with the brand spanking new.

Found in NY and Vegas, the hot to trot spot (3150 M Street, N.W.) Serendipity 3, brings whimsy with over-the-top dishes offered including the over-ten-million-sold signature Frrrozen Hot Chocolate and the savory Foot-Long Hot Dog. It also offers new savory and sweet menu items exclusive to the District, such as the President’s Lobster Pasta, Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, Pan Seared Virginia Striped Bass and the Red Velvet Sundae.

Since D.C. is full of characters, the over-8 ft. tall fiberglass statue of a smirking Abraham Lincoln is not to be missed (designed by high-profile D.C. artist and prop designer A.J. Strasser) and Serendipity 3 also features a historical clock from landmark D.C. jeweler Galt & Bros, as well as a 1960s photograph of Andy Warhol and Serendipity 3 co-founder Stephen Bruce.

Executive Chef Jason Ferrell brings his around-the-world culinary experience to the restaurant, while Pastry Chef Liz Barbato infuses the timeless treats with her unique and extensive pastry know-how.

Serendipity Foot Long Hot Dogs

I hear hot dogs and ice creeeeeam (I hope they serve other stuff, as I am a non-shell fish eating veggie and stay away from the creamy stuff-including ice cream-if you know what I mean. But you, my friends, eat up! Looks damn good to me.)
