Soup shop that inspired `Seinfeld' reopens in NYC

 NEW YORK (AP) - The bisque is back. The soup stand that inspired the Soup Nazi episode on "Seinfeld" reopened in New York City on Tuesday, six years after its famously brusque owner shut it down and licensed his recipes to a franchising company.

More than 100 people were waiting in line for the noon reopening of the tiny storefront where soup chef Al Yeganeh (yah-GAH'-nah) once ladled broth and imposed discipline.

Yeganeh no longer owns or operates the store, but company officials say he remains deeply involved in the business.

He even has a webcam that allows him to check in on the place at any time.

The new operators say customers won't have to worry about being banished if they don't place orders promptly.
