Presenting…A Ranch 1/Soupman Combo?

As I was walking back from lunch I happened to notice that the location of The Original Soupman on Pearl St. (btw. Wall & Hanover) that’s been papered over forever and under renovation looked open. Well, they weren’t, but that’s not the interesting part. It looks like they’re still going to be serving Soupman items, but also Ranch 1 chicken?! This seems like a weird combo to me but I’m going to wait to pass judgment until I can actually eat here. I really hope they have someone standing outside in a chicken costume! Let us know in the comments if you see them up and running for lunch.

Original SoupMan Seized

Lunch’er “Bones” sends us word that The Original SoupMan at 110 Pearl on Hanover Square has been seized, apparently for non-payment of taxes. It’s a branch of the mega-chain associated with Al Yeganeh, better known as Seinfeld’s Soup Nazi.

We’ll keep you up-to-date on developments, and in the meantime, there’s always the life-changing Hot Soup Cart.
