NYC summer dining

A foodie friend and I will be in NYC in August and need two lunches and two dinners. We are big foodies and do lots of research before we go, but we wanted some advice from the board about the tentative list we've generated. We are looking for a diverse selection (one Italian, one french, one fusion, etc.). We are also big wine and martini drinkers and want to visit some wine bars or martini stops before we eat.

We are thinking of:

Jean Georges and Felidia for lunch

For dinner we are having a hard time narrowing things down from the following:
Mesa Grill
Boyley Upstairs
Blue Hill
Spicy Mina
Spotted Pig

We are also looking for the best places to shop for bread, cheese and charcuterie.

We are hoping to hit Sullivan's bread bakery (what else might work?)

For drinks we were thinking
Angel's Share
Flatiron Lounge

We were hoping that we could do lunch and then food shop (walking) our way to dinner so we have to consider location somewhat as well.

We would love to have some feedback about our list: what should we add? what should we get rid of? Thanks so much in advance.
