"No soup for you!" Al Yeganeh, portrayed as the "Soup Nazi" on Seinfeld, is back in his original haunt on West 55th Street. But you probably won't find him ladling his famous soup at this tiny spot where patrons in the old days were asked to "pick the soup you want" and "have your money ready." The shop offers a wide variety of soups from lobster and crab bisque to shrimp gumbo and mushroom barley.
