(PRESS RELEASE) — Ocean Resort Casino today announced the addition of legendary New York restaurant Serendipity3. Starting in Spring 2022, Serendipity3, home to famous hot chocolate Frrrozen, will offer a one-of-a-kind dining experience transporting Ocean guests to a fantasy world filled with great food and dreamy desserts. The 8,000 square foot restaurant and adjacent ice cream parlor will feature a whimsical interior with a modern twist and a nod to Serendipity3’s iconic history.
“We are thrilled to welcome this one-of-a-kind restaurant to the Ocean restaurant portfolio,” said Warren Richards, Senior Vice President of Catering for Ocean Casino Resort. “Located just steps from the energy of Ovation Hall, the addition of Serendipity3 will provide our guests with the opportunity to create memories with every bite in a playful environment unique to Atlantic City.”
Founded in 1954, Serendipity3 has been a New York institution for over six decades, attracting millions of customers since its inception. The restaurant has been the setting for several movies, including the 2001 romantic comedy Serendipity. Serendipity3 has a well-known celeb that includes Cher, Jackie O, Beyonce and Jay-Z, Kim Kardashian, and new partner and investor, Selena Gomez.
“I am thrilled that we will be expanding and opening a Serendipity3 location in the Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City,” said Serendipity Partner Selena Gomez. “Many new guests will be able to visit and experience what we all love so much about the original New York location.”
As the third location outside of New York, Serendipity3 at Ocean will offer brunch, dinner and late-night meals daily. The menu features delicious savory creations that tap into nostalgic cravings like foot-long hot dogs, burgers, pastas and sandwiches. Unique desserts include ornate sundaes, pies, cakes and floats, all served with a whimsical twist, including imaginative sweets such as the Selena Gomez-inspired Selena Sundae.
Today’s announcement follows Ocean revealing the opening of the new casual Hawaiian-inspired restaurant, Makai, as well as Nola’s Bar & Lounge, a brand new nightlife and live music venue. Ocean recently announced a reinvestment in the resort of over $75 million over the next year, with the highly anticipated addition of over 460 rooms and suites. This follows Ocean’s 2021 property enhancements, including a redesigned casino floor with new high-limit experiences.
