another 4 nights - pls help me narrow it down!

it's been a while since i've made it to your fair city, but lo and behold a trip has come up. i hope you can all yay or nay my thoughts on dinners and perhaps offer up some suggestions with regards to portable breakfasts. here's a quick run down of where i've been so far:

YAY:
osteria (tried nearly everything but the pizzas, i'm an offal junkie), amada, tinto, morimoto (buribop!), ansill, good dog, paesano (arista is salty gold), standard tap, naked chocolate

NAY:
distrito (too much going on), matyson, bar ferdinand (not a complete nay, but i like amada much more), capogiro, white dog cafe, le bec fin (didn't get to try the food, the service was too much of a disaster)

i've probably missed a couple that don't really matter and purposely left out all the cheesesteak hunting... this go around i'm not going to double/triple up on restaurants in one night, it was pretty ridiculous. now i'm thinking of dining at:

vetri - loved osteria, how could i not love vetri (they still have spots open for when i'm there)
zahav - sweetbread schnitzel, need i say more? someone please tell me they do it well!
ladder 15 - i adored my experience at ansill
sansom oyster house - just because i haven't been, might just be a pre-oyster thing
cochon - reviews are good, i like pig!
morimoto - it's kinda my go to and this time i will eat the steaming bowl of ramen
bibou - the menu speaks to me
garces trading company - i like half his operations... so maybe i'll like this one too
modo mio - good italian just gets to me

please help me narrow it down to at least 4 and maybe 1 or 2 "happy hour" (nibbles before a walk to the next destination) or confuse me and add to the list! also, any thoughts on where i can get a delicious sandwich/packaged food that will survive overnight for a tasty reasonably healthful breakfast would be wicked. i may go bahn mi hunting around washington ave if all else fails.

thanks for reading my ridiculous post and offering up suggestions!
