Serendipity 3, that most New York of institutions, is opening a location in DC.  K Street Kate reports that the popular restaurant chain will be taking up in Nathan’s old location on Wisconsin and M in Georgetown.  Prime real estate, to say the least.  If you’re not familiar with Serendipity, it’s an ice cream shop of sorts that is famous for its huge (I’m talking punch bowl size) portions.  They’re particularly well known for their frozen hot chocolate, which is really something that you’ll just need to try.  And yes, it is in that movie Serendipity.  The developers are hoping to have the restaurant open by the end of spring.  I’d wager that it’ll be an instant hot spot.

Kirk is a Maine-born, military brat who moved no fewer than 12 times during his childhood. He came to the DC area in 2004 for his undergrad and decided that it was the place for him. Since graduating, he’s nabbed a job with the Fed and spends most of his free time hunting for cheap thrills in the city. Find out why he loves DC.

  1. I’m so very excited…a little piece of my hometown in my adopted city!

  2. If the management is a representation of the restaurant then please count me out. It’s not fair to judge a place that hasn’t even opened and sounds magical, however after encountering/witnessing an awful attitude from one of their employees i must say i’m left with a sour taste in my mouth. Maybe the ice cream can wash it all away…

  3. Dear Mr Alban,

    Please accept our apoligies for your recent experience. Could you please contact me directly so I can fully understand the situation, so it never happens again.

    Very respectfully
