Avgolemono from Uncle Nick's Greek Cuisine (747 Ninth Avenue, 212-245-7992), $5-$7

Feel a cold weather-related illness coming on? Have a little Greek penicillin.

This chill is supposed to let up by tomorrow, but in the meantime, it's a good night to warm your bones with a hot soup. Consider the Avgolemono at Uncle Nick's Greek Cuisine up in Hell's Kitchen. Dubbed Greek penicillin, a massive, unconquerable bowl of the thick, lemon-spiked soup, bobbing with shreds of chicken and soft carrot, runs just $7, which leaves you enough for more warm pita on the side. Or opt for a $5 cup of the stuff and have a little baklava for dessert.
