Honeymoon in New York... calling New Yorkers...

We're coming to New York next month for 6 nights. We fly in on Monday 20th and leave the following Sunday evening.

It's a while since I've been (5 years maybe), and the missus has never been, so we're both really excited about it.

I'm wondering what you locals can recommend we must see or do, places we must eat or drink, areas that are great to hang out in these days, not just in Manhattan, anywhere we can get to easily on the Subway, anywhere to get a real taste of New York and take some great photos.

I'm building a list of bars and restaurants I want to see/drink/eat in as that's what I design for a living over here and there's a lot of NY influence here right now, but you can't beat some hot off the press local knowledge. :D

For an idea of us to help your recommendations... We're mid-late 30's, we're designers not corporate high fliers, we're not 'fancy', we're up for getting dressed up to go out, but happy hanging out and relaxing in jeans and sneakers.

Any L4P cars & drinks meets happening while we're in town?

What do we need to know guys? :D

Good recomendations so far guys...... L&B Spumoni Gardens, Balthazar & Minetta Tavern are all in Eater NY's Essential 38 NY Restaurants

Any opinions on any of the others in that list?
the strip house is one of my favorite steak houses, along with dylan prime. good food without the old man feel of some of the traditional places.

yakitori totto is japanese meat on a stick, so you might not like it. the place is good though.

bbq is something american and dinosaur is really tasty. if i had to choose just one restaurant on the list i'd go here.

not a fan of chin chin, but i think i'm pretty picky about chinese food and not their target audience.
