Suggestions Please for mini-Honeymoon, Early December

Thanks for checking this out.

My fiancee and I are taking a quick honeymoon, early December, Sun-Wed. We are staying somewhere in midtown, but are willing to travel for great food. This is our second trip as a couple, and these boards helped immensely on our last trip.

I am hoping to have another special food trip. Last time we had lunch at EMP, dinner at Momofuku Noodle bar, and plenty of great bagels. Hoping for better pizza this time around (we went to the famous touristy place in Little Italy, also a Michelin listed place in the Village). Also went to Rogue Tomate, which was okay.

I am hoping for at least one ultra-special meal. I will take a shot at Ko (for dinner) when it comes around. We are not rich, so I just can't see dropping the kind of money necessary for Per Se or Masa. Any other suggestions? We are very willing to try some of these top end places for lunch. About how much should I expect at Jean-Georges for lunch? It seems Daniel does not do lunch. Bernandin is too fish focused for us. Is Ko worth it over Jean-Georges or Daniel?

Is Blue Hill of the same caliber as the above? Any others to consider? Atera?

How much should I expect at 15 East? Any other sushi/japanese considerations (Kyo Ya)?Is it a spot where lunch is advisable? My fiancee is part Japanese and one exceptional Japanese meal would be nice, but would be nice to have an option a bit cheaper than 15 east.

We loved Momofuku Noodle Bar, hoping to try Ssam this time, but will likely also go back to the Noodle bar. Or is Ma Peche the way to go over Ssam?

She has never been to Brooklyn, so we may head over there. Any suggestions there would be great as well.

Thank you for any advice. I will keep poking around the boards. We aren't concerned with particular cuisine, we are just looking for great experiences that aren't going to destroy our bank account.
