Located within Rutgers University’s Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, Café Z’s chef and American Culinary Federation member Bruno Pascale crafts, stirs, and presses paninis, soups, and sandwiches for students and culinary connoisseurs alike. The restaurateur constantly crafts new paninis from recipes devised within the easy-bake oven of his mind, blending fresh ingredients such as ham and brie, or portobello, pepper, and mozzarella with thinly sliced bread for pleasing midday meals. Or embark on an epicurean expedition through Café Z’s menu of ever-changing entrees.
After filling stomachs with sustenance, digest helpings of culture with a visit to the museum’s quintet of current exhibits; Admission is up to $6 per person. Displays include a compendium of Soviet photography from the 1980s (through November 13), a collection of children’s book illustrations by Frank Asch (through June 24, 2012), and a young Georges Seurat’s connect-the-dots coloring book.
