Restaurant Review: Serendipity 3 DC
July 15, 2012 § Leave a comment
Serendipity is a quirky diner/bar/dessert establishment in the heart of Georgetown in DC. It’s pretty famous for its desserts, especially the frozen hot chocolate. A friend and I decided to check the place out on a Saturday night around 7. I was surprised to see that there was not a line – the place was pretty empty and we were seated promptly. However, about half an hour later there was a good amount of people lined up by the doorway, so I guess timing is key.
Their menu is full of American classics, from burgers and sandwiches to crab cake salad and omelets. I finally decided to get the S3 Chopped Chicken Salad, which is a mix of artichoke hearts, tomato, chicken, and corn with ranch dressing.
The vegetables were all very fresh and colorful. The corn had just been cut off the cob, and the lettuce was crisp and the tomatoes very sweet and juicy. The chicken was a bit tough and lacked flavor, plus some parts were a bit burnt, and I suspect that the artichokes were from a can. All in all, a pretty decent, large salad, though not worth the $15 price tag. Also I admit that this choice wasn’t the most exciting, so I probably shouldn’t judge Serendipity based upon it.
A table next to ours was celebrating a birthday and all of them ordered deliciously decadent-looking desserts, so next time I’ll know what to go for!
