'Soup Nazi' Opening SF Shop

Original Soup Nazi opening up soup shop in SF's Fisherman's Wharf.

The Soup Nazi is coming to Fisherman's Wharf. No, not Larry Thomas, the guy who played the Soup Nazi on "Seinfeld" (and was recently in SF at WonderCon), but the actual guy the character was based off of, Al Yeganeh.

Yeganeh opened a his Original SoupMan shop in Manhattan in 1984, and gained immortality on the "Seinfeld" show.

Now, as the Chron reports, he's coming to San Francisco to open shop. He's no longer serving up soup himself, but handles the training of chefs, and getting his Original SoupMan restaurants built around the country.

This will be his first West coast location, and is expected to open around late May. You'll be able to get all the original flavors, including Lobster Bisque, Crab Bisque, and Mulligatawny, and an additional special Cioppino soup just for San Francisco.
