Returning food visit, what would you change or suggest

I'm returning to NYC in late July primarily to eat. I will be on my own so real fine dining/upscale is not top priority. Here is a list of some places I've been and am thinking of going. Coming from SF what am I missing or would you suggest trying that I don't have listed. Will be in NY for 5 days.
Also, have not ben to any of the cocktail bars that are often listed on CH. How are they for solo visitors wishing to try some creative cocktails. And should add any wine bars worth checking out?

Have been to:
Bagels: H&H / Essa / Russ & Daughters

Deli: Carnegie / Katz / Stage

Pizza: Arturo's / Artichoke / Di Fara / Johns / Grimaldi / Lombardi / Keste / Motorino / Patsy's (e harlem) / Joes / Totonnos

Dogs: Grays / Papaya King / Crift

Burgers: Burger Joint /

BBQ: Virgils / Daisey May / Blue Smoke

Steak: Lugers / Keens

Italian: Al Di La / Bar Pitti / Bottega del vino / Becco / Dell'Arte / Esca / Cacio e Pepe / Lil Frankies / Lupa / I / Inoteca / Otto / Po / Maialino / Peasant / Scarpetta / Robertos (bronx)

Others: Gramercy Tavern / USC / Modern bar room / Degustation / Balthazar / Pastis / Schillers / Minetta Tavern / Spotted Pig / Spice Market / Tabla / Bar Bouloud / DB BIstro / River cafe / Momofuku Saam / Ma Peche

Breakfast: Clinton St Falaffel: Azuri cafe carts: 53rd & 6th and others
Spanish: Tia Pol / Casa Mono / Las Ramblas
Fine Dining: Per Se

Thinking about the following:

Burgers: Shake Shack

Bagels: Murry's

Italian: Locanda Verde / Babbo(bar) / Via Emilia (for Lasagna) / Torrisi(sandwich_lunch) / Da Andrea / Picolo Angelo / Eataly

Steak: Old Homestead

Falaffel: Taim

Japanese: Yakatori Totto

Chinese: Xian

Others: Prune(lunch) / Breslin / Txikito /

Will be in Boston just before so leaving out chowder, lobster roll etc
