By Kayla Garritano

If you’ve been looking to satisfy your sweet tooth craving, and want to try a legendary, trendy restaurant in New York City, then Cupid has a place for you! Serendipity 3, in the heart of Little Italy, could be your next date spot with your “sweetheart,” and you may even be able to indulge in a few celebrity sightings!

Serendipity 3, one of NYC’s sweetest spots, is a delicious restaurant with a high profile clientele and some serious food!

NYC is great for date ideas. Not only is there culture within the art museums, Broadway shows, and sightseeing, but there’s also a great time in the city’s popular restaurants. Before we get to Serendipity 3’s appetizing meals and desserts, let’s start with the celebrities who’ve made their mark inside the restaurant.

Since 1954, Serendipity 3 has brought great food and celebrities that come along with it. This New York restaurant’s walls are decorated with celebrities who have come into the warming abode. Celebrities such as Wendy Williams, Bill Clinton, Sarah Palin and the High School Musical cast have been pictured.

It’s safe to say this restaurant and its food gave these celebs “serendipity” when walking in to the little restaurant. And what is to thank? The food, the dessert, and the sweet drinks.

Let’s start with the food.There are many unique options to choose from, such as “De la Maison,” or house specials, casseroles, pastas, sandwiches, crepes, omelets, fish and vegetarian options. There is something for everyone here.

Next on the menu come these unique desserts. There’s a whole section dedicated to just sweets, where you can get different flavors of pie to something whacky called “cheesecake vesuvius.”

There’s also an entirely different section called “drugstore sundaes,” where you can either create your own or choose from one of the many on the menu. You can go healthy with fresh fruit, or splurge a little with a cinnamon fudge one. What’s unique about this place is that there is a sundae that’s just as famous as its clientele. The Golden Opulence Sundae requires a 48 hour in-advance reservation. Why? Because this sundae prices at $1,000 and is covered in a 23-carat gold leaf. It holds the Guinness World Record for most expensive sundae!

And let’s not forget the teas, caffes and frozen drinks to top off your taste buds. Get a classic twist with a frozen hot chocolate, or venture out with a mochaccino. Whether it’s frozen or hot, it’s going to warm your stomach and your heart.

Serendipity 3 brings class and comfort to fine dining. If you want some dating advice, take your partner here. Splurge a little with these dinners and treats, and you’ll be sure to have a magical night. No reservations are taken if you’re ordering just desserts. You may even get a nice view of a celebrity couple while snacking on a sundae. How sweet!
