No corned beef for Seinfeld

The comedian, here to play the Academy, makes a wise dietary choice at a Center City deli known for big portions.

Jerry Seinfeld, here to play the Academy of Music, delighted the Saturday lunchtime crowd at the Kibitz Room (1521 Locust St.) with a sit-down comedy appearance.

Out with fellow comedian Mario Joyner, he ordered  honey turkey on rye with mustard and a side of coleslaw, plus chicken soup. Whereupon, owner Neil Parish told him that he should be eating a pastrami and corned beef combo with a
potato latke.

"He told me he chooses life," said Parish, who replied that the notion of too much red meat and too much fat being bad for you is a government conspiracy.

Now that cracked up Seinfeld.
