May Theme Day Wannabe

I think this looks like it should be in a different city... which was the theme for May's Theme Day. Actually, this is the location of the famous "Pea Soup Andersen's" well known for their split-pea soup.
I suppose I should say this was the location. Unfortunately, just as I was too late for May's Theme Day, we are all too late to enjoy a delicious bowl of soup here. This restaurant closed some years ago and is now a TGIFridays.
In case your appetite has been piqued, here's the recipe:
Andersen's Split Pea Soup
8 cups water
2 cups green split peas
1 Rib celery, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 tsp thyme
Dash red pepper sauce
1 bay leaf
Combine water, peas, celery, carrot, onion, thyme, red pepper, and bay leaf in large kettle. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Boil vigorously 20 minutes, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer until split peas are tender. Press soup through fine sieve and reheat just to boiling point.
