OK. I've done a ton of research. I've narrowed down my picks. I still have a few spots to fill in... let me know if you have any recommendations or if there's anything you'd change.

I'm staying in the Meatpacking area.

Day 1
Lunch Katz’s (never been... dying to go)
Dinner Del Posto

Day 2
Lunch Ssam Duck Bar
Dinner Locanda Verde

Day 3
Lunch Empellon (I'm a Mexican food freak and can't get it where I live)
Dinner Takashi / Sushi Yasuda (need at least one good Japanese meal. Already been many times to Nobu and Sushi Seki)

Day 4
Breakfast B&H / Stage (B&H for french toast, Stage for corned beef hash)
Dinner Teqa (menu looks ridiculous)

Day 5 (New Year's Eve)
Lunch S’mac/Motorino (was told to share some mac then go order a pizza)
Dinner SHO?? Going to a concert at Pier 36 and would like a really good restaurant near Pier 36

Day 6 (New Year's Day)
Brunch Tertulia/The Dutch/The Breslin/Cookshop (can't decide)
Dinner PDT?? / The Cannibal / A really good steakhouse (been to Luger's many times... prefer to stay close to the hotel)

Lunch spots considering:
Lamb’s Club, Meatball Shop, Num Pang, The Cannibal, Dim Sum Go Go, A-Wah (Dim Sum), Oriental Garden (dim sum), DBGB (Boloud), Dos Toros Taqueria, Porchetta, Yakitori Toto, Torrisi, Artichoke (pizza), Da Mikele (pizza), Valelka (pierogies & blintzes), Minetta Tavern (black label burger)

Dinner spots considering:
Takashi, Sushi Yasuda, Tertulia, 11 Madison Park, Frankie’s 570

Near Hotel: (these are just some places in case I need a last minute snack or meal)
Co. (pizza), Bill’s Burger & Bar, Murray’s Bagels

If you don't see them on the list and are wondering why, I've been to Marea, Scarpetta and Il Mulino. I do prefer places that have a bit of life/energy, but the food quality is of the utmost importance. I don't want to go anywhere just for the scene -- although if there's great food AND a scene, even better!

Thanks in advance!!
