Best Ice Cream Shops in the US?

Not gelato. Not frozen custard. Not in your grocer's freezer. And not in a fancy restaurant.

My question is, where do they make the best ice cream, with interesting flavors, made in small batches from fresh ingredients, that are just totally delicious?

The place that comes to mind for me is Toscanini's in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I still dream of their caramel ice cream. It's almost bitter with that burnt sugar edge. They do well with all the warm spices--cinnamon, clove, cardamom--and I seem to remember some good chocolate variations too.

Educate me! Where else is this happening?
