Casual Italian Lunch in Manhattan?

Capri Caffe on Church b/w Chambers and Reade is excellent and very casual but absolutely tiny.

Roasted Acorn Squash with Wild Rice Stuffing

Recently made wild rice stuffed acorn squash and it was even better as breakfast with poached eggs added to the leftovers... I added some fresh oregano to the poaching water for extra flavor

Roasted Asparagus

Hands down the best way to cook asparagus but it's even better if you add some fresh parm when it comes out of the oven

bland chicken

I have a terrible habit for some reason of under salt- and spicing many of my dishes. Maybe it's because so many restaurants overdue it (especially on the salt which I absolutely hate!!!) and I'm unconsciously trying to avoid that... So, while I chant mantras to myself about not under-doing it, can someone please give me some advice on what to do with my fully cooked but very unsatisfying dinner? I'd like to rescue/re-create it for dinner tomorrow....

I roasted a chicken, carrots and turnips with garlic, rosemary, caraway seeds, salt, pepper and chicken stock. The carrots are fine, the turnips could use a bit of a kick in the pants and the chicken tastes sadly similar to soup chicken. So far my rescue thoughts are to cut up the chicken, saute everything with some onion & additional veggies and make a chicken pot pie. It's not what I'm in the mood for this week though, so all suggestions will be very welcome!
