Al Yeganeh, the "Original Soupman" famous for his delicious soup and persnickety customer rules, is returning to the tiny West 55th Street storefront from which his empire sprang. Yeganeh closed the shop in order to pursue franchising opportunities, which didn't do so hot. His location down on Pearl Street was seized by the tax man, and at least eight of the company’s locations nationwide failed within the first two years of the launch of the national company. Maybe customers were disappointed by the lack of Yeganeh's hospitable charm? Anyway, he held onto the lease at his original location at 259A West 55th Street, and he'll be back July 20th! To celebrate, here's a YouTube video featuring the best of Seinfeld's "Soup Nazi" moments.
