Amy's cupcakes; Photo - NY MagazineSince she's not in a play these days where her baked goods are sold as refreshment, you can try cupcakes made by Amy Sedaris at Joe in Greenwich Village (141 Waverly Place, 212-924-6750). NY Magazine reports that even though Sedaris is admittedly diva-ish when it comes to her baking style, that was no problem for owner Jonathan Rubenstein: “I was like, ‘I don’t know when I’ll bring them in, never call me at home, I only take cash,’ and Jonathan was like, ‘Great!’”
