RE: The Original Soup Man
<<Go there as soon as you get the chance! I've been to one of them in NYC and the soup was fantastic!>>
I do not agree at all. There are two in the Wall Street area where I work, and in both places the soup was way too salty. The flavor was OK but not nearly as good as I was hoping for. And at $20 for a quart of bean soup it was the most expensive soup I've ever had, including upscale restaurants.
I've never been to the original, so maybe that is better. I've read that several of the branches are either closing or in danger of closing, so they've definately expanded too fast. The Soup Nazi can't be everywhere at once to monitor the operations, and the help at the two locations I went to seemed to be of the clueless fast food counterperson variety. --Ken
