With Jessica Seinfeld in town to promote her cookbook at the Book Festival of the MJCCA this week, it was only natural that Jenny Levison sign on to lead a discussion with her at the center.
Jess, of course, is married to Jerry Seinfeld, whose encounter with “The Soup Nazi” led to a most memorable line in television history: “No soup for you!”
Jenny, of course, is better known as “Souper Jenny,” the lady who ladles out such beloved bowlfuls that a crowd crushes into her little Buckhead shop daily. (Not to mention the near-riot every year when Levison prepares for her month-long summer vacation).
The two hit it off on stage during Jessica’s presentation at the book festival, and in the restaurant, where Jenny proclaimed, “Soup for you!”
Actually we have no idea if she said that. It does sound like something Jenny would say though. She’s quite the ham.
Oh, and you know who showed up while Jessica was enjoying lunch? Jason Bateman, who’s in town shooting “The Change-Up,” with his wife and daughter. The Seinfelds and Batemans have plenty of friends in common so had a great time catching up, we hear.
Small world, huh?
