Museum to serve up more ‘Seinfeld’

Set, costumes on menu

While only a handful of Gothamites were lucky enough to score a ticket to Jerry Seinfeld’s much-hyped stand-up gig on Broadway last week, the masses now at least will have the chance to visit Monk’s Cafe — the diner set that “Seinfeld” watchers know as the home-away-from-home for everyone’s favorite bunch of self-absorbed New Yorkers — at a Queens museum.

“Seinfeld” producer Larry David and the comedian himself have loaned the American Museum of the Moving Image the restaurant set, including the vinyl booth where Jerry kvetched with George, Elaine and Kramer on so many episodes during the show’s eight-year run.

The set, which goes on display as part of the museum’s “Behind the Screen” permanent exhibit starting on Aug. 15, includes pots and pans, mustard and ketchup bottles, cracker baskets, napkin dispensers, menu racks, and numerous other items from the diner. Also part of the installation are costumes from the cast, including Seinfeld’s “puffy” shirt and Newman’s postal uniform.

While visitors won’t be allowed to take a load off in one of those familiar rust-colored booths, the museum’s own cafe will be offering some staples from the unbalanced diets of the Seinfeld gang: black & white cookies, Junior Mints, Drake’s coffee cakes, Snapple fruit drinks and Pez candy.
