40th Bday weekend in Manhattan: will need help with 2 dinners, 2 breakfast, lunch and snacking

Hi! My husband and I are planning a weekend in NYC to celebrate his 40th in January. We will arrive after lunch on Friday and will be hopefully staying in the village, Soho and would like to focus most of our meals down there. After searching the boards and looking at menus, I would like your input:

Friday dinner: hoping for something casual and not "fine dining". Some ideas: La Sirene, Le Gigot (ate there about 5 years ago and loved it), Corsino, THe Smile.

Saturday morning: breakfast or brunch...so many brunch menus seem really pricey to me. Any suggestions for a simple breakfast spot for some eggs and pancakes?

Saturday lunch/snacking: Katz' deli or head up to Eataly and sample. La Esquina also interests me, but is it worth a lunch? What about Caracas Arepas?

Saturday dinner: This is where I would like to get sort of fancy....but not necessarily white tablecloth. Ideas so far: Northern Spy, WD-50, Craft, Babbo and Public.

Sunday: another brunch and another lunch before heading home mid-afternoon.

I know this is very advance planning, but I love thinking about this stuff!!!

What do you think?
Thank you so much in advance!
