Looking for creative small plates for birthday weekend trip Jan 22nd-24th

I love absolutely everything foodwise, the crazier or more unique, the better. Looking for some good lunch/dinner spots for saturday, sunday, monday (lunch only) with some interesting & unique small plates, my wife and I much prefer ordering 4 or 5 appetizers to ordering a couple entrees. Last year we did WD-50 (enjoyed it), any other molecular gastronomy places like that spring up? Ssam bar was great too. Hoping to essentially get small plates at the ~$15/each range with a good variety, so we can order maybe half a dozen and get some (reasonably priced) wine and come out under $150 for the meal for dinner, maybe around $100 for lunch. I should also mention I'm a huge craft beer nerd so that's always a plus.

My current food itinerary (PLEASE critique at will)

Sat:
Lunch - Somewhere at Eataly (been wanting to check that out)
Dinner - Sugiyama (for Kaiseki)

Sunday:
Brunch: Balthazar
Dinner: Riverpark

Monday:
Lunch: Eleven Madison Park

Thanks for your input!!!
