Seinfeld was right!

If you want to take home any of The Original SoupMan’s renowned seafood bisques or spicy chilies, you still must obey Yeganeh’s rules!!! Othervise - NOOO SOUP FOR YOU!

We had been told to visit after a recommendation from a friend who had previously visited and we were incredibly happy we did. We had the Lobster Bisque and it was absolutely delicious! These guys know their soups! Can't really say anything more than if you want delicious soup you have to visit!

Honestly, it was the whole build up and atmosphere which sold this place to me. To be honest the lentil soup was good, not outstanding, but good. Its vegetarian though and i was happy i had the option. Nice extras a banana and chocolate, wear your camera and theyll realise youre a tourist. You may get some extras for free.... More

Great great great soup. Had hoped to see the soup Nazi but no such luck. But on a chilly day, this hit the spot! Great place to visit!

Beside all the soups I had there, I recomend the lobster roll. The clam chowder is very good. The lobster bisk is even better. But the lobster roll is also worth the visit.

Great soup here - had the chicken tortilla - nicely spicy, warmed me up! Came with a nice hunk of bread, and everything was really fresh - SUPER!

My husband is a huge Seinfeld fan so we had to find the soup man. We each got a small soup and thought it was a little pricey but each cup came with a small baguette, a piece of fruit and a piece of chocolate!! It turned into a lovely lunch! The soup was delicious

If you are a Seinfeld fan, like us, this is a neat stop! The soup is really good! We went to the one on 55th Street, and there is seating a block away. We had Mulligatawny, Corn Chowder and Chicken Chili. All were delicious and served with a piece of fruit and chocolate. Would stop by here again!!!

I had to stop being a Seinfeld fan. I got the large lobster bisque which was delicious and we ate it in Central Park. It was served with bread, a piece of chocolate, and an orange...not sure why....DELICIOUS! Worth the ten bucks for sure

This little place was right by our hotel. A friend and I both saw a lobster roll for ten dollars and couldn't resist! It was smaller we split one and it left me wanting more. Very tasty!!

Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
