Keeping you updated on the city's top food news...

Serendipity 3 is expected to open at the prime Georgetown corner of M Street and Wisconsin Avenue sometime  this week. Nice timing as the temperature rises for the famed New York eatery's signature "frrrozen" hot chocolate to land in town. Read more in Metrocurean's Restaurant Watch.

• Spike Mendelsohn's new kosher food truck Sixth and Rye (in partnership with Sixth and I) got rolling on Friday. A huge line formed with people eager to try the corned beef sandwiches (or catch a glimpse of the former Top Chef'er?). The truck will only operate on Fridays. Follow it on Twitter @sixthandrye.

• Metrocurean popped into the sleek new outpost of the Hill's Peregrine Espresso, expected to open this week at 1718 14th St. NW. The new spot, with just a few seats (read: no computer campers), will pour Counter Culture coffee. A small patio out front is in the works.

Palena's new market opened on Friday, reports WaPo's Tom Sietsema, stocked with products that win chef Frank Ruta's seal of approval as well as prepared foods from the kitchen.

Freddy's Lobster and Clams from Grapeseed chef Jeff Heineman is now serving seafood in Bethesda. Read more in Restaurant Watch.

• Speaking of lobster rolls (which are totally the new burger), Eater reports that Luke's Lobster is slated to open in Penn Quarter this Thursday.

Hello Cupcake opened the doors to its second location Friday on Barracks Row at 705 8th Street SE.
