Zou Zou’s Cafe treats taste buds to authentic French flair, assembling an appetizing array of homemade soups, salads, and sandwiches beneath the building’s restored pressed-tin ceiling. Dining quartets can skip stones across piping-hot saucers of soup made daily, priming palates and palms for an electric array of handheld eats. Ensconced amid focaccia, lavash bread, or bagel buns, Zou Zou’s sandwiches include the Manhattan Kingpin’s herbivore-friendly blend of fresh mozzarella, veggies, and pesto as well as the Hungarian Hammer’s sizzling panoply of ham, butter, and pickles. A trio of corned-beef sandwiches sails onto salvers bookended by thick slices of rye bread, and a selection of egg-centric breakfast sandwiches pairs with frosty fountain sodas and fresh coffee to unfurl eyelids around the clock.
On the weekends, acoustic crooners hurl harmonies against Zou Zou’s exposed-brick walls, improvising opuses inspired by the eatery’s collection of metal sculpture, local artwork, and historic framed photos. Alfresco diners can soak up sun on the outdoor patio or tap into Zou Zou’s WiFi from their perches beneath a vibrant display of wall-mounted umbrellas and oversize novelty berets.
