Founded by Calvin Holt, Patch Caradine and Stephen Bruce, the name is defined as "...the art of making happy discoveries, or finding the unexpectedly pleasant by chance or sagacity."   Serendipity 3 has been one of New York City's most beloved eateries for more than 60 years offering guests in Dubai the same whimsical menu as their New York clientele, with unique desserts including ornate sundaes, the outrageous banana split, decadent milkshakes, cakes and the renowned Frrrozen® Hot Chocolate. The highlight of the menu is the ‘Dubai Treasure Chest’ intended for four, consisting of an edible chocolate chest filled with ice-creams, waffle cones, cakes, berries, a variety of candy topped with a generous spray of whipped cream and hot fudge sprinkled with a dash of edible gold. The savory creations make for a haven of timeless dishes tapping into nostalgic cravings, while being exciting and new at the same time. Foot-long hot dogs, pastas, burgers, sandwiches and breakfast options all served in generous portions, with a twist, aimed at inspiring customers to make happy discoveries.
