hungry scholar doing research at the Central Library seeks chowish food nearby, lunch or early dinner... I don't know this area at all.
also... I'm a not-very-strict vegetarian, which means I will eat food that is cooked on the same grill w/meat, will pretend refried beans don't have lard in them, etc (judge not... good food sometimes requires compromise).
Any veggie-friendly suggestions-- though please go ahead with non-veggie-friendly spots, and I'll be creative?
