Foodie needs advice for first time NYC trip

Hello fellow chowhounds! I have been searching the boards and I am overwelmed with suggestions, so I figured if I gave my requests, you all would be kind enough to narrow it down!
I orginally come from Miami where I was spoiled with latin american cushine while growing up but have called asheville, nc my home for 6 years now. There is no decent Italian or Chinese food here (although there are some great eateries!) so that is a must.

Is Joe's Shanghai a must in little china? or what is? probably going to go around lunch.

Is Les Halles worth it for steak and fritas?

essabagel is right down the street from our hotel and I want a damn good bagel. good, bad, suggestions?

Italian has me the most lost- something price fixed for a special dinner perhaps. any secret spots that rarely have an off night?


any special experiences with ethic food I might not be thinking of?

Lastly (and thank you in advance) any suggestions on nightlife for two married girls in their late 20s/early 30s.. I have no clue. we love live music (from jazz to rock) and we both have been known to karaoke it if the environment is friendly and fun. good drink places (wine and cocktails)?

we will be there for four days, including st. patty's- worth going to pubs?

I guest Im pretty excited :)
