Excited Londoner with reservation at Babbo!!

I'm coming to the US for the family trip of a lifetime with my dad and bro - this will be my dad's first ever trip across the pond and our first stop is NYC - so excited! Have spent a while now lurking on this site and following advice I have got us dinner reservations at Babbo and at Peter Luger. I've been to Luger before so I know its steak for 3 (yay!) but cannot wait to try out Babbo.

So....What do we order?? This is a once only visit for my dad. He isnt that adventurous so I know he'll lean towards chops and steak - what should I order to let him some variety?? So many things have been recommended on here, I want to try them all! Also my bro is of the bottomless pit variety of human - is an antipasti, a pasta dish and a secondi each too much?? (Bearing in mind he will finish off whatever we leave - when we ate at Lombardis we ordered a large pizza between us and he nearly ate the whole thing to himself)

We are also going to return to Lombardis with my dad and some friends who are also in town as we loved it and I think he will...

Finally I also know that I want to take him to Katz Deli. After taking him to eat at these places, will I have done his NY trip proud or is there anywhere else I should try and squeeze in?? Unfortunately, we only have 4 nights before we move on so 3 are gone already..but there's always room for lunch and brunch and late night eats! Oh and dessert!
