Outdoor seating: Gauge of success?

5/15/2008:

The advent of warmer weather brings people out of hibernation, and the buzz back into Hoboken. One of the sure signs that spring and summer are here, is the outdoor sidewalk seating many restaurants and eateries have.

I’ve noticed a peculiar trend over the past four or five “nice” days in town. It’s the 500 block of Washington Street. No matter what time of the day or evening, I’ve seen people eating, laughing and enjoying their time at restaurants like East LA and Juniors Papaya. However, each time, The Original Soup Man (which neighbors the places I just mentioned) was pretty much deserted, both inside and out.

Is soup just a winter weather food? Or are residents and visitors alike dissatisfied with the “product” the Soup Man provides? Or is it just an economic/value issue?

It’s worth much but it’s worth treating yourself to one for some time.

Please. You don’t use hotdog ingredients to make soup. Stew, maybe, but not soup.

They need to re-evaluate the prices. I went once (won’t go back), spent $11 on Soup & a drink. This comes with a piece of chocolate and Fruit but still not worth while.
