Change in plans...staying in the Upper WEST Side now!

We found a great deal on a studio apartment over the weekend, so we're staying on 85th near Central Park West instead of on the UES. This area is closer to the things we're doing, near a subway stop, and lots of good food options :)! Here's the plan so far:

Levain Bakery (gotta have another choc-chip cookie from there!!)
Perhaps Ruby et Violette if we can get there via an express train!!
Dinner at Rare or Ouest (one is casual, one is near the apartment)...but open to suggestions!

Doughnut Plant in the morning
Brunch with a friend at The Stanton Social
Late dinner at Balthazar

H&H Bagels for breakfast since we're going to the early Astros/Yankees Game
Lombardi's for pizza
Late evening snacks at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola since we're seeing a jazz show

Breakfast at Good Enough to Eat on our way to the Museum of Natural History
Lunch at Shake Shack
Brother in law's birthday dinner at BLT Prime

H&H Bagels for breakfast...need something portable to eat on our walk across Central Park to the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Lunch at Candle Cafe (sister in law is vegan, so we agreed to give it a whirl!)
Post-theater dinner at Aureole

Wedesday: Walking the Brooklyn Bridge. How far of a walk would it be to Chinatown if we take a subway to Brooklyn and walk back over the bridge? Would love to get some dumplings for lunch before we leave town. Would like to fit Katz's in here somewhere...thought about picking up a pastrami to go after our Stanton Social brunch and having it later for a pre-Carnegie hall snack to hold us over until Balthazar. We have a full kitchen in our studio!
