1st Trip to NYC, input/suggestions needed for Michelin stars, ethnic food and bars

Hi CHers,

Wife and I are serious foodies making the journey from Canada to NYC for 7 nights from Feb 23- Mar 2nd. We will staying in the lower east side in order to be near all the cocktail places we most want to visit. That way we can stumble home at the end of the night. We usually do one breakfast/lunch and one dinner per day, followed by a cocktail crawl.

Here are my must go dinners:
Per Se - Extended vs regular tasting
EMP
Jungsik

These are my other likely dinners
Babbo (or other great Italian suggestions)
WD-50

For these next ones should we do lunch or dinner?
Jean Georges
Momofuku Ko (or just do Ssam Bar)

Lunches
15 East and Yasuda for sushi (love great sushi)
Katz's
JG and Ko possible

Would love some suggestions for other breakfasts, bakeries near East Village and ethnic foods (Chinese, Puerto Rican, whatever else)

Finally, bars will be:
Angels share
Death and Co
PDT
Pegu Club
Milk and Honey
Lani Kai
Mayahuel

Finally, how far out can I be making resos for these places? Are Per Se and EMP 28 days max? I know Momofuku has the crazy online reso system so will be the last one. Can the others been done now?

Thanks,

Looking forward to hearing your words of wisdom CHers.
