I'm surprising my wife with 3 nights in NY for her 30th Birthday. I have been researching good places to eat, but there are just too many to fit into 3.5 days. Any advice on the order of site seeing or restaurants and bars is greatly appreciated! It will be the first visit to NY for both of us. The times are all flexible. Please feel free to rearrange as you see fit. I tried to pick restaurants near the places we are visiting to cut down on travel time and expenses. The only things that can't change are the Yankee's game and Broadway show.
