Amy Schumer recently visited the steak house in New York she used to work at and left a generous tip for the staff.

The 36-year-old actress previously worked at Michael Jordan's The Steak House in the Grand Central Terminal in New York, and the star decided to return to her former workplace with a male friend on Thursday evening. 

The New York Post's Page Six column has revealed the 'Trainwreck' actress tucked into a filet mignon in the private dining room last night. 

Although it is believed the comedian's feast came to a relatively small sum, it has been reported she felt generous and decided to give back to the restaurant by handing over an $80 tip to the waiting staff.

This news comes shortly after the blonde-haired beauty was recognised as the only female comedian in the top 10 Forbes' annual rankings of the highest earners, as she took fifth place with $37.5 million.

Meanwhile Amy, who ended her 18-month romance with furniture designer Ben Hanisch earlier this month, has admitted she is looking for love and is desperate to find a "nice guy" who will sweep her off her feet. 

Speaking previously about her ideal beau, she said: "I'll go for nice guy."

And Amy believes her attempts to "rush the intimacy" caused problems in her union.

She said: "I went through a break-up. We were a year-and-a-half, you know, it's not that bad.

"We went out with a couple who had been together a long time, we were trying to rush the intimacy.

"Like I was trying to impress the girl and I was like 'Well he woke me up this morning with a fart!' And he just slowly turned to me and he goes are 'We doing this?'

"And I was like 'No, no, no, no, we're not opening fire. Don't tell me any of the disgusting s**t I've done."
