Visiting chowhound needs help

Here's my original post --

"I'm going to be spending a week in New York, staying and working in the Canal/Broadway area. I'd like to mine this wonderful resource that is chowhound and ask all of you for some suggestions. I'd appreciate Breakfast and Lunch suggestions in the general area that I'm staying/working and then Dinner suggestions anywhere within a reasonable distance.

I'm looking for a nice, rounded-out list of places to go - from delis and bakeries to quick lunch-spots to the latest/greatest new place for dinner. For the week I'm there, I'll need to average out about $50-$60 per day for my food expenses, however I do plan on going all-out one night and expect to pick that tab up myself. Last time I was in the city I went to Aquavit for my special night out. When I was trying to choose a place to go last time, several people suggest WD-50 - is that still a good suggestion? Other thoughts?"

Here's what I have so far --

-Definite-
Katz's
Raoul's
Lombardi's
Le Zinc
Kori

-Maybe-
Noho Star
Sullivan St. Bakery
Di Fara's
Balthazar

-Big Meal-
WD-50
Babbo
Gramercy Tavern
Eleven Madison Park
Daniel
L'Impero

Do you have opinions on these choices? Is there anything on my -definite- list that you think I should avoid or anything on my -maybe- list that I should promote to definite? Also, I haven't even tried to get a reservation at any of my -big meal- choices, so I just may end up calling all of them to see who has availability.

Thanks for any feedback you can give.
Sean
