Rutgers welcomes Jersey diner to campus this week

Henry's Diner opened on Monday on the Livingston campus.

Sept. 11—When Rutgers students are asked what kind of food operation they'd like to see most on campus, guess what appears near the top of the list every time?

A Jersey diner.

Wish no more; here comes Henry's Diner, opening today on the Livingston campus in Piscataway.

"It's an amazing piece of equipment,'' says Nick Emanuel, pointing out an Electrolux high-speed panini press in the diner kitchen. "You can get paninis in 40 seconds.''

He points out the spacious range - "we have a lot of firepower here'' - and a Turbochef sandwich oven, which he describes as "phenomenal.''
