Long weekend end of July - how's this itinerary?

My first trip to NYC in over 40 years, my English wife's first trip ever. I think I've worked out a plan but would like comments. We're arriving Friday noon July 26th.

Friday night: Peking Duck House in Chinatown - I really want Chinese food and Peking Duck is one of the few Chinese things my wife liked (she wasn't too happy with the food on our trip to China!)

Breakfast - Leo's bagels in the financial quarter as we have an 8am Statute of Liberty Trip booked.
Lunch - Chelsea Market as my wife's going to a quilting exhibit 4 minutes away
pm is a food tour
Dinner - Charles Country Pan Fried Chicken in Harlem - trying to spread geographical locations and I love fried chicken and cornbread!

Breakfast - Bubby's Pies or Clinton Street Diner for pancakes (whichever, the other one for Monday)

Lunch/Brunch - Minetta's - having been introduced to French Dip in a lodge on the Rogue River in Oregon earlier this month, I want to try it in a real restaurant.

Dinner - Henry's End, which takes us to Brooklyn

Breakfast - Bubby's or Clinton Street
followed by the self-guided LES tour I found here
Lunch - not sure, maybe the east side Westville?
Dinner - we have to be at the Gershwin for 7 so I was thinking Hill Country Chicken as that should be quick service, right?

and sadly Tuesday morning will probably be breakfast at EWR but on a brighter note, lunch in Asheville, another foodie city!
