NYC: Serendipity 3 and the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate

NYC: Serendipity 3 and the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate

Serendipity is an iconic restaurant located on the Upper East Side, and yes, it’s the restaurant from the Serendipity movie. The restaurant is known for its eclectic decor and whimsical atmosphere, and it has been a popular destination for both locals and tourists since its opening in 1954. The extensive menu features a variety of savory dishes, desserts, and the signature Frrrozen Hot Chocolate.

I was curious about the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate and wanted to find out what the decades long hype was all about, so that’s what I ordered. Frozen hot chocolate? Isn’t that just chocolate milkshake? While there are similarities, I would say that they’re still two different animals. What I really liked about the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate is that it wasn’t too sweet, but very hot chocolate-ish. It was served with plenty of whipped cream on the top, of the kind my grandma would make, that is, no sugar, and rather heavy, as compared to the fluffy, watery stuff from a can you’d sometimes get at other dessert places. It’s more a dessert than a drink, and the serving is huge, so I had to abandon my original plan about a main course later. The Frrrozen Hot Chocolate is $19.95 but considering that it’s so filling, it’s a meal in itself I guess the price is somewhat justified. Furthermore, it’s quite an experience to have visited a place that has been around for so long and has such an amazing history and clientele, because that’s where the real attraction of Serendipity lies.

There’s an $18.95 minimum spend per person (July 2023).
