Best people-watching cafes/bars

Hi everyone! I'm going to meet up in NYC at the end of Sept with a friend from Europe who has never been there (she's been to Boston, where I live). I've been printing out a ton of restaurant info from this board, and now we are looking for advice on:

Cafes and/or bars with the best people-watching

Bars with a view (I always used to take people to the Greatest Bar on Earth, so something along those lines)

Best BYOB restaurant (not sushi, I hate sushi)

I've been reading great reviews about Baraonda, Cuba Cafe and Gonzalez Y Gonzales - are those places still good and fun?

Anything else you think we absolutely cannot miss when it comes to food/drinks/fun (we're in our early 40s, so fun but not college-age type of stuff)

Any info is greatly appreciated!
