Soup for you! Al Yeganeh, the New York soup vendor whose cold style inspired the infamous Seinfeld character known as the “Soup Nazi,” reopened his location shop on 55th Street in Manhattan on Tuesday. Yeganeh, who calls himself “The Original SoupMan,” shuttered the tiny shop back in 2004 after he sold the rights to his business—though he still controls the brand and his recipes, which can now be found in 22 locations and online. Yeganeh lives within walking distance of the stall, but true to his TV counterpart he snubbed the opening ceremony, which featured a ceremonial cutting of zucchini. The "SoupMan" reportedly detests the “Soup Nazi” character and banned Jerry Seinfeld in 1995. Unfazed, Seinfeld himself showed up at the stall this weekend, wishing Yeganeh well by telling the company's president to "take care of that guy."
