I'm not a dessert person so I'm not surprised I haven't been to any of these. I did try to get to Serendipity once but didn't want to stand in a line out the door just for an ice cream. I did cave though once this year at David Duncan House in Toronto who does a table side Cherries Jubilee. It was beyond excellent. There's something to be said for the classics.
