Need 4 Specific Recommendations for NYC trip for Sweet 16 excursion

RIfoodie29 | Mar 10, 201906:02 AM     11

So I am traveling to NYC with my wife and 4 teenage girls for my daughter's Sweet 16 Celebration in early June. We are looking for 4 specific recommendations. Chowhounders have guided us exceptionally well across the country (DC, Chicago, Dallas, San Diego etc) Here are the specifics:
1. Recommendations should be a place that would be comfortable to visit with teens
2. Should generally near 237 West 54th Street, where I am staying. If that is a food desert, we can travel, but since there is 6 of us I rather be within walking distance (but if there is a can't miss place I will travel (UBER XL should work).
3. Here are the 5 recommendations that I am asking for:
A. Saturday Lunch: an awesome Sushi place
B. Saturday Dinner: a great Italian restaurant (definitely looking for great pasta) not necessarily a red sauce joint.
C. Sunday Morning: Jazz Brunch (a specific request for a place that serves avocado toast weird I know.
D. A great place to grab a sandwich or something to go for the train ride out of the city (maybe sandwiches)
E. An activity I would not have thought of. My daughter wants to visit 5th Avenue to window shop, she loves the hustle and bustle of Times Square and we are doing a NBC studio tour any other thoughts?

Thank you in advance for your amazing recommendations and insight!!! You have never steered me wrong.
