Chowhounds, i need your help. Travelling to New York July 25th - 29th, have spent hours reading this board and trying to plan our recs - you guys are amazing! DH and I are turning 40 and want to make the most of our trip. Here's what I have so far, any comments or suggestions would be great!

Friday 25th - Special birthday dinner at EMP
Sat 26th - need awesome brunch place either near our hotel (33rd and Madison) - would Artisanal be good? or Times Square area - not sure where. Doing Brooklyn Bridge walking tour at 5:00, and thinking Dinner at Peter Luger after - good idea?
Sun 27th - LES eating tour (sounds awesome!), then 6:30 broadway show, need ideas for post-theater dinner, but we could take a cab anywhere - preferably something not too expensive, ok to reserve for 9:30/10:00 pm, good late night vibe
Mon 28th - Breakfast - Penelope's (near hotel) then walking around soho / greenwich village. Dinner - Little Owl (or other suggestions for good/moderate GV rec) then jazz at the Village Vanguard.
Tues 29th - The Met, Central Park, The Frick. For lunch, we thought to wander around Central Park but suggestions for cheap / street food would be great. Dinner - need help! Looking for something moderate in price, ($50 each plus tax and tip), maybe a "neighbourhood" restaurant, could be in any area.

For suggestions, we are open to try anything, but we are not big fans of fish/seafood (allergies!). Love pretty much everything else, especially stuff that is unique to NY, ethnic. Thanks for any help you can give!
