Jerry and Bania’s famous argument on “Seinfeld” over whether soup is a meal happened right here at Mendy’s. One taste of Mendy’s delicious soups will put you squarely in Bania’s camp. Mendy’s meal-worthy soul-soothing soups include Split Pea with croutons, hearty Chicken Gumbo, and, of course, their famous old fashioned Chicken Matzoh Ball Soup.
Mendy’s Kosher Delicatessen in Midtown Manhattan was made famous when Jerry Seinfeld argued with Kenny Bania over whether soup is a dinner on “Seinfeld.” Today, the Jewish deli founded by Mendy Merel in 1988 is popular in its own right for their Glatt-Kosher corned beef, pastrami, and legendary meal-worthy soups. Their famous over-stuffed sandwich combos are the stuff of legend, enhanced by signature accompaniments like deli mustard, pickles, Russian dressing, and, of course, soup!
As seen on Seinfeld, Mendy’s is a GLATT KOSHER Delicatessen – under OU Kosher supervision.
