Gian Franco Morini, director of the Tom’s Restaurant documentary we wrote about in October, sent us this footage Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, and Jason Alexander outside the Morningside Heights eatery they made famous this week.

You may recognize the outside of this diner as Monk’s Café, the coffee shop from Seinfeld.
