Season 3 Teaser
Having been featured on "Foodbeast" for the restaurant's world famous "Super Tray," the San Pedro Fish Market and the Ungaro family attract not only LA locals, but people from around the world, including celebrities like Sofia Vergara.
The San Pedro Fish Market began their journey 60 years ago in the water front section of the Los Angeles Harbor. The founder Tommy was put in charge of the fish market when he was a teenager along with his cousin Henry. A live seafood section was developed where customers could pick their own Lobster and Crab and have it steamed fresh. Additionally, they developed their own smoked-fish recipe and garnered quite a following for Smoked Halibut, Salmon, Tuna, Cod, Swordfish, and many others. These were the first moves towards selling a cooked, ready-to-eat product and would eventually lead to their World Famous Shrimp Tray.
CREATIVE CHEF JOE CALDERONE - CREATOR OF SERENDIPITY 3’S GOLDEN OPULENCE SUNDAE
Ice cream is serious business at Serendipity 3 – from the Outrageous Banana Split to the edible work of art – the Golden Opulence Sundae. Serendipity 3 continues to be in the forefront of ice cream creations. The Golden Opulence Sundae, which must be ordered at least 48 hours in advance, consists of 3 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla beans, and covered in 23K edible gold, placed in a Baccarat crystal goblet (that you get to take home with you) and drizzled with the world’s most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porcelana and the rarest, Amedei Chuao chocolate, which is made from cocoa beans that are harvested from an island off the coast of Venezuela. The masterpiece is suffused with exotic candied fruit from Paris, gold dragets, chocolate truffles from Switzerland and topped with a gold plated sugar orchid. A tiny bowl of Grande Passion caviar, salt-free and infused with passion fruit and Armagnac, accompanies the sundae. An 18K gold spoon is used to partake in this incredible indulgence.
Serendipity 3, the legendary New York City restaurant and General Store, has been enchanting millions of patrons since 1954. Beginning with Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, Grace Kelly and Cary Grant in the 1950’s to the newest crop of hot young celebrities such as Beyonce, Blake Lively, Selena Gomez and Kim Kardashian, Serendipity 3 remains a must-visit destination. The restaurant has been the setting of three major Hollywood films – One Fine Day with George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer, Serendipity with John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale, and Trust the Man with Julianne Moore and David Duchovny. Owner and founder, Stephen Bruce, continues to reinvent an outrageous whimsical world full of outrageous food, decadent desserts and outlandish merchandise, all located in a Tiffany-jeweled fantasy setting.
