Just got a new job on UWS, at 75th and Amsterdam and seem to have already exhausted much chowhounding possibilities. Had pizza and wonderful empanadas at Johnny Peppers, good eats at Bernies and have hit the Fairway Cafe a few times. Ate at the cheap Chino Latino and paid way to much for a bowl of Avoglomeno (sp?) at Nikos. Ate at Zen Palate a bit. But I really, really need some more suggestions- one thing I haven't found yet is Chinese, nor a good place for Salads. Am starting to feel disillusioned with my own chowhounding, for surely there are untapped treasures, even if the UWS is known as something of a culinary wasteland.
Help anyone? Bear in mind I work for a non-profit and need options that are as easy on the wallet as they are exciting for the palate.
