San Diego chowhound (formerly of New York) seeks advice

Well, the subject line contains the gist of my message. I will be visiting Manhattan for three dinners in late March and would like some advice. One note, I eat seafood and lots of vegetables, but no beef, pork, or fowl.

One dinner should be a supreme dining experience centered on seafood. Le Bernadin is one possibility. Would you (collectively) suggest Oceana or RM instead? Jean Georges? There seem to be many possibilities, and I'm out of my depth in trying to decide. Is there somewhere less renowned and less expensive, but equally as tasty?

For the next dinner I am thinking about Italian. Is Babbo worth going to if one does not relish entrails?

The third will be Indian. What is the absolutely best Indian restaurant in Manhattan? I have spent several years in India, living in small villages as well as Bombay. I know my Indian food. Cost is not an object. But please don't steer me towards the overly sweet ferenghie food found in many expensive Indian restaurants. One recommendation I have received is Chola (in the east 50's I think). How is it?
