Six of us arrive next week. We have some reservations and some open spots. Looking to fill in some of the open areas. We will be settled into our hotel by 8:30pm next Thursday evening and have no particular plans but will be hungry. The first night we will most likely want to walk maybe up to six blocks to find a place to eat. Will be staying Times Square W hotel. We are open to all foods, budget is not a concern can be street food to something expensive, just don't want a lot of formal dining ex., Bay Area might be Gary Danko, Michael Mina, etc, would do Per Se as an exception but not available.So here is what we have.

Thursday evening need help per the above.
Friday: Most likely will grab some bagels etc, then going on Circle Line tour. From there going to head to Central park walk around etc. Thought of grabbing something at Azuri Cafe but if not any thoughts on sit down lunch. Thinking Bar Bouloud, Ed's Chowder House, Ma Peche or?
Friday evening res @ Scarpetta

Saturday morning breakfast? We were then going to take train across Brooklyn Bridge and eat at Grimaldi's as we would like to walk back over the bridge. Grimald's seems to get ripped on chowhound. Is it the tourist factor or does the pizza suck. Any other suggestions given our bridge plans. Any good places for a drink and maybe small bite as we come back into Manhattan. Plan is to go head past Southstreet Seaport over to Wall street thru Tribeca and eventually to WV.
Saturday evening we are seeing a show so thought early dinner such as 5 Napkin, Johns, Zigolinis,BXl CAFE, Pigalle or ?

Sunday Brunch: Minetta Tavern, Prune, or ? Later off to someplace like Inoteca LES for glass of wine snack etc then walk EV. Always looking for places to stop in have a drink and bite to eat.
Sunday evening: Gramercy Tavern bar area.

Monday: Breakfast at Clinton Street Bakery, Lunch Katz,
Dinner: Maialino or does it have too much of the feeling of Gramercy Tavern and its food. Also thought of Txikito.

Tuesday Carnegie deli before heading off to JFK.

Grotta Azzura recently reopened is it any good. If we were to do Steak was thinking Uncle Jacks, Angelo&Maxies or Old Homestead.

Thanks for any suggestions.
