Itinerary Critique and Help for Last weekend of Freedom

toro | May 1, 2011 12:52 PM

My wife and I are having a second child, and have one last food getaway. Used to visit regularly, but have not been to NYC in 4 years. Please help with any suggestions or updates. We are coming in for a late lunch Friday and leave after Breakfast Sunday. We used to live in San Francisco and Singapore and are unfortunalty stuck in Ann Arbor. We are total gluttons and always try to fit in way too much on these trips, but we are not obese.

Lunch Friday- Usually Japanese,- in the past have eaten at Yasuda (too pricey but an experience) and Yama, but am looking for a place with handmade Cold Soba and sushi, have penciled in Soba Koh's.

Dinner Friday- Staying near the West Village, we don't want anything too fancy, maybe Gastropub, and don't mind eating early, Thinking spotted pig, or Breslin, but always like hidden gems and less noisy crowds.

Late night Friday- Ramen or Itsykaya, have not heard about much. Ippudo or Setsgaya, too busy in the past. Eaten at severl in the past but forgot, last one was ren ren or something

Sat Am- Somthing light- bagels and lox, Katz? then hit the Soup Dumpling at Joe's more nostalgia than taste, i prefer them small like Din Tai Fung.

Sat- Grazing around Chinatown and little Italy- any suggestions. Usually a slice somewhere, Lomdardi's or Grimaldis'

Sat Dinner- This is the Big One, have eaten at the Big 3 imho and loved each Le Bernadin/Daniel/Per Se want to take it down a notch $, but if its great we will spulge, who knows when we will make it back? Annisa? Anyone had the tasting Menu not listed on website, will travel outside of Manhattan, if really special.

Sat late night- Dessert Bar- best we have come up with is Milkbar

Sunday- Need to eat noon. Artisnal, Prune in past, would not mind something ethnic. Are any of these maketplaces open like Eataly this early.
Thanks for any suggestions.
