NYC wknd recs. Haven't been in 10 years.

I live in Miami and use this board often, especially when I travel. I havent been to nyc in over 10 years so am a little out of it. I am going with my gf from Oct 30 - Nov 2. I am 29 she is 25.

We are staying in the Benjamin Hotel (125 E 50th) the first night, then I'm heading to my sister's place in Murray Hill (245 E 49th). My mom is also in nyc tending to my sick aunt. She is staying at my cousin's place which iI believe is b/t 72-75 C Park West.

So what I was hoping for were some suggestions. My gf wants to go to Barmarche on Thrusday night, aooarently she loves that restaurant.

Friday I was think of dinner for about 8 people. Something nice and trendy but not over the top or too pricey. Location is not a probelm. I've heard good things of Pheasant and Alto, but am open to suggestions.

Saturday unfortuantely is shopping day so I have no idea where exactly we will be for breakfast or lunch. Probably ranging from Murray Hill to SOHO, if you guys have a cant miss lunch spot we'd love to know

Finally Sunday. I would like to take my mom and aunt out for brunch with my gf and sister. My aunt is doing chemo/radiation so I really dont want to go to far from the apt. They are on Central Park W in the 70's. Hopefully you guys can suggest a good brunch place in that area.

Thanks in advance for your help!!!
