NYC Dec 17-20 with a 5 month old....

Hello NYC CHs!
Call us crazy, but we are coming to the city the doesn't sleep with our not-so-sleepy 5 month old daughter. We are staying at the W in Time Square (got a cheap deal), and are looking for some advice on where we can go for lunches and early dinners with our little one. She will sometimes sit quietly, sometimes not.

I had planned this trip for last Dec, but got pregnant and was sick so it was cancelled. With your help, I had planned a list of the following:
Cafe Boulud, The Modern Dining Room or Jean-Georges
Chelsea Market Lobster Place
Per Se
Pizza at John's of Bleecker or Motorino

Russ and Daughters
Minetta Tavern
Jean George
The Dutch
La grenouille

Now that baby is in tow, I'm sure most of those places will have to go. Was planning to a walking tour that I found on here that would take us to Katz, Russ and Daughters, Yonah Schimmel's for potato knish and “Belgian Fries.” (Ray’s) for chocolate egg cream. That all still seems doable...

Would the Dutch be an option for lunch or dinner? What about Motorino for pizza, Balthazar for an early dinner or lunch, and can anyone provide any advice/guidance on doing a takeout dinner from Momofuku Noodle Bar? Is Shopsin okay for a stroller?
For most of our dine-in options, I just need to see if a stroller is a big faux-pas...Also do we need reservations at all of these places from now?

Let us know if we are going really astray, or if you have any other advice for us. Hoping we can still enjoy some of the great food you have to offer!

Thanks in advance....
