Tom’s Restaurant – Seinfeld
Diner, Restaurant, American
The infamous group of New Yorkers we’ve all come to know and love, despite their mostly bitter outlook on life, has made a household name for themselves, continuing their legacy far past the series finale in 1998. Seinfeldhas ultimately been branded as “the show about nothing,” but it has also connected itself with one of NYC’s most famous diners. After the episode of the gang joining together to chat at the fictional Monk’s Café, it was only plausible that the exterior shot of said cafe would establish a name for itself. Tom’s Restaurant, or more commonly known as just ‘Restaurant’ in neon lights, is located in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan. Aside from the comedian and his friends, the diner is also a frequent spot used by students and faculty attending Columbia University.
