1st time to NYC and looking for helpful hints

Hello NYC,

We are heading to NYC next week (14th thru the 17th) and are looking to enjoy as many of the great restaurants as we can. We will have a few things planned, but make no mistake, our main focus is food! We are not interested in mega expensive meals, nor are we interested in Outbacks or any other chain restaurant. We want unique and if possible... quaint, and a few of the high tourist spots (Eataly, Katz, Momofuku).

After seeing an earlier posts I will lay out our trip and hope that we can get input on visiting as many great food places as we can. The only thing we are absolutely tied to is a play on Friday night, and maybe Book of Mormon Saturday afternoon. We would also like to make an attempt at getting SNL tickets early Saturday morning.

We are staying in the Tribeca area and will walk or take the subway to as many things as we can. Other places/things we would like to do... walk the Brooklyn Bridge (Thursday), go to the Chelsea Market(Friday), see the High Line(Friday), play (Friday night)SNL tickets, see Bryant Park (sunday). We love bakeries, coffee and great frozen deserts. We love unique restaurants and lately have come to love places that have tasting plates (our local wine bars have some of the best). For food we also enjoy Italian, French, bakeries, delis, waffles, brunch, ice cream sandwiches, ice pops, etc.). We also love food trucks and will be keeping our eyes open!

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance.
