Serendipity 3 closes on Lincoln Road

Sunday’s unannounced closure of Siena Tavern wasn’t the only restaurant shutdown over the weekend in South Beach: Serendipity 3 has called it quits at 1102 Lincoln Rd. 

The diner, known for its over-the-top desserts like Frrrozen Hot Chocolate and a $1,000 sundae flaked with gold, opened here in early 2012 under a franchising agreement. The original Serendipity 3, located in New York’s Upper East Side, opened in 1954 and remains in operation. 

(Smart business move: Doraku Sushi, Serendipity’s neighbor at 1104 Lincoln Rd., is responding to the closure by opening for Sunday brunch, starting this weekend, from noon to 3 p.m. with a mix of traditional Japanese dishes and American items like granola bowls. The sushi restaurant never served weekend brunch before and is hoping to draw some of Serendipity’s old crowd, a manager said.) 

The Serendipity and Siena Tavern shutdowns are the latest in a string of South Beach restaurant closings in recent weeks that includes Anthony’s Coal-Fired Pizza (520 West Ave.), De Rodriguez (101 Ocean Dr.), Khong River House (1661 Meridian Ave.), La Gloutonnerie (81 Washington Ave.) and Porfirio’s (850 Commerce St.).
