Original SoupMan, the soup chain spawned by a Seinfeld character based on real-life ‘Soup Nazi’ Al Yeganeh, has closed its location at 79 Jefferson Street at Fisherman’s Wharf after just one year. Jonathan Kauffman had nothing terrific to say about the place when it opened, and apparently it hasn’t been a big draw amongst the cargo-shorts-and-sandals crowd either. The Scoop brings the news, and says that a company spokesperson did not know the reason for the closure. We should note it appears to be a bad moment for soup chains in these parts, given the recent closure of one of Soup Freaks two locations as well. [Scoop]
