Stephen Bruce opened the doors of this New York staple in 1954, charming patrons with his restaurant’s tiffany lamps, café-style small tables, and whimsical touches like the large hanging butterflies on the second floor. Of course, the reason most people trek to this Upper East Side favorite is for the famous frrrozen hot chocolate, a huge dessert that resembles a melted chocolate sundae. From celebrities like Zac Efron to politicians such as Bill Clinton, Serendipity 3 attracts just about every type of customer.

Insider Tip:

During the winter, you may want to ask for a cup of hot water to warm back up after enjoying one of the frozen treats.
