So I got reservations @Babbo...Now what?

Okay so the anniversary dinner is set but we have a full week in your city, like I've said I've done my homework, but would still love you feedback, so far we have:

Breakfast / Brunch / Lunch
Ess A Bagel
Russ & Daughters
Clinton St. Baking Co.
Shopsins
Absolute Bagels
Barney Greengrass

I know this list is heavy on Bagels but you can't get a decent bagel in San Francisco to save your life.

Dinner
Motorino
Momofuku Sam Bar
Katz
Minetta Tavern or Gramercy Tavern
( Which is you favorite of the two? They seem too similar to do both)

Flying in late Sunday night, August 31. Staying at Districkt hotel by Penn Station, thinking about getting acclimated to the neighborhood & going to Pony Bar for some beer & a bite, but is the food worth it? Would hate to waste a night with mediocre food.

I'm also thinking of having a dinner in Brooklyn, but I'll post on that board.

Once again, thank you & all critiques are appreciated!
