Two best friends vacationing in NYC for 5 days

Hi all!
My best friend and i are headed to New York City for five days this week all the way from Sacramento, CA. I was hoping that if I post in the Manhattan boards that I will get better responses!

We are looking for the best shopping in the city. I have done the usual spots before but I want to know about those hidden gems! We enjoy our bargains but we don't mind splurging, especially if its something we LOVE and need.

I am also looking for great places to eat for dinner and lunch. We don't mind those cheap little spots that just keep bringing you back but we also want to try something absolutely delicious and memorable. We are more inclined to spend more for dinner than lunch (probably around 60 without drinks for both of us not including tip). All I know so far is that you better believe I will be getting some of the pork belly buns at Momofuku!

Any other suggestions you have for two 22 year old ladies in New York please throw my way. I have not been to New York in a year and a half and this trip is going to be different than the previous ones. We are here to just enjoy the city and not do the tourist gigs. We want to experience New York the right way.

I appreciate any advice or suggestions! Thanks everyone!
