Amy Sedaris may no longer hawk her homemade cupcakes here, but that doesn’t mean celebrities don’t still drop in for a bite. Just don’t expect to be sitting down when Rhea Perlman orders hubby Danny DeVito a muffin; seating’s limited to four teeny tables, and the staff is equally cramped behind the counter where almost all of the cooking is done. Changing daily specials are the big draw like chicken-spinach lasagne, penne pasta with turkey meatballs, and shepherd’s pie. Sandwiches and salads to go are popular with the lunchtime crowds, while a selection of baked goods nourishes Sunday Times–toting downtowners lucky enough to score a table. The rustic décor consists of battered wood floors and aged tiles. This community ethos also extends to the posting board near the door, where flyers for theater productions hang alongside ads for guitar lessons. Meanwhile, the quaint wooden benches outside provide much-needed extra seating.
