Christmas Trip. Avice?

I am going to be in NY again for 6 days over Christmas.
I have some reservations, and was looking for advice from you hounds.
Given my travel partner. We can't do fine dining. He is a basic food type, Steak, some seafood, but no shellfish, sushi. Grilled Cod is about as adventurous as it gets;). He will also eat chicken, but thats about it.
I'm pushing it a bit with the restaurants I have booked, but I think he will be able to find something off all the menus. We are mid 30's, dont want anything too fancy. Like a relaxed/buzzy vibe, good wine/cocktails. So all advice suggestions welcome.
Christmas Eve - I have booked Mas farmhouse. I think this will be the biggest stretch for him. But Im hoping it will be worth it. Set meal for $98
Christmas Day - We have booked Allen & Dellancey, as we are staying LES, and will be uptown earlier. Plan champagne in the Plaza, breakfast at the Rivington.A & D seemed like the only decent dinner option in the area, as once we get back from a long day will want something close to Hotel for dinner. Any other suggestions/options?
26th - Seven bar & grill before a Nicks game.
27th - I have booked Public in Noho. Have been here before, like the ambiance, food. Is there something equivilant Soho/Village area that might substitute? Preferably less fancy food wise?
28th- Travel Partners choice of Dylan Prime.
We will eat out every meal, so breakfast recomendations in LES would be great. I have a good list for lunches, but any other options welcome.
We also have a plan for a day in Brooklyn around Park Slope etc. So lunch recomendations for there would be great too.
