Now that Greenwich Village has an International House of Pancakes on Carmine, why not a House of Cupcakes for Sheridan Square? A tipster sent in these shots of the latest cupcake contender to fight for Manhattan's million consumers of cute.
Born of Princeton, New Jersey, the House of Cupcakes recently announced their plan to expand into a "mini chain." The winners of the Food Network’s bloody “Cupcake Wars” partnered with the owner of Party City to go franchise, with locations in Manhattan and the Bronx.
What the Village really needs are more franchises, more chains, and more cupcake shops.
The spot they're moving into was last a GNC. Reader Michael Magill writes, "The GNC was a bar for many years. The GNC moved from Christopher/West 4th to make room for the Tasty Delight next door to the Bank of America, which used to be the Tiffany Diner. Around the corner on Christopher next to the Citibank was The World. Remember the go-go boys in the window on Pride Day? That is now a Dunkin Donuts."
