"Seinfeld" fans rejoice! According to Gothamist, Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander were filming inside Tom's Restaurant this afternoon. Tom's was used as the exterior for Monk's Diner, the "Seinfeld" characters' favorite haunt.
It's fitting then that Seinfeld and Alexander (who played George Costanza on the long-running NBC series) are there filming an episode of Seinfeld's web series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," which is exactly what it sounds like.
Seinfeld must be a fan of Morningside Heights, as this is the second episode he's filmed in the area. A recent episode featured him and Tina Fey getting coffee at Floridita. We were stealthy enough to be there when they did, managing a short encounter with Tina Fey herself. Check after the jump for a photo of Seinfeld emerging from Tom's.
