  1. Gennaro delivers in that neighborhood. The UWS is a wasteland for Chinese food.

      Thanks americanafan. Do you prefer Gennaro over Carmines?

        Carmine's is totally overrated. Good only because it accommodates large groups. Gennaro is good but oily. Best is Celeste, a few blocks south. Not a red-sauce joint but fantastic Italian food.

          Carmine's can be fun for a large group dining in, but the quality of the food at Gennaro is much better. Some people find the service at Gennaro brusque and the quarters cramped, but that wouldn't be an issue for delivery.

      2. I would call Grand Sichuan and see if they'll deliver to your address. They're on Amsterdam and 74th/75th.
