Coming into NYC in a couple of weeks for 7 days. We're staying on W 47th and 7th Avenue Wanted to get some feedback on our dining choices:

Day One Get in late evening

Day Two Lunch@ Eleven Madison Park Dinner@either Sugiyama or Blue Fin We have 39 steps tix@ 8 pm.

Day Three Lunch@Aureole Dinner@friend's apartment

Day Four Lunch@Jean Georges Dinner@Babbo

Day Five Lunch TBD Dinner@Blue Smoke BBQ

Day Six Lunch TBD Dinner@Keen's Steakhouse God of Carnage tix@8 pm

Day Seven Lunch@Aquavit Cafe leaving back to CA late afternoon

I'm assuming EMP/Aureole/JG/Aquavit Cafe are still running their prix fix lunch specials in late September?

WIll try to win the internet lottery and book a dinner@Momofuku Ko Worth it? If we can't get in, we'll probably try the noodle bar instead.

How formal is the dress code at EMP/Aureole/JG? I think I read JG requires jackets and EMP might 'suggest' jackets. Really would like NOT to have to schlep a jacket around town while I'm on vacation.

You've probably noticed that with the exception of Babbo, the rest of the places are all within 20 blocks of where we're staying. I wanted placeholder reservations but am willing to change them and hop subway or cab to Soho/Tribeca/Chelsea/Village areas

Anyplace we're obviously missing or reservations made I should cancel?

Thanks in advance!
