Four days in NYC

I know there are some other posts like this, but I was wondering if you had any suggestons, thoughts. My boyfriend and I will be in NYC for 4 days - Dec 18th - 22nd. I am a big foodie, and he isn't as into it, but is very open minded and will eat anything and go anywhere (food-wise) that I suggest. We don't have the biggest budget, but for me, eating and walking around are the two best things about NYC. Oh - I should mention, he's never been there before. I have been twice, but both very short visits and I only tried a few places, as the people I was with weren't into doing foodie things.
I have eaten at : Stromboli's, Tea & Sympathy, Diner (Brooklyn), some Morroccan place in Soho, Mama Mexico (midtown), Zabar's, Magnolia Bakery, Katz's....(that's all I can remember)

We are thinking of making a reservation at Babbo (if I can get through tomorrow. They are closed today.) But would I be better off having our more "high-end" meal elsewhere? Like Les Halles? Or Balthazar?
We are from Toronto and have a lot of eating options here, but I really want to try the best of the best (from the low-end to the high)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!
