Going to NYC in about three weeks....need suggestions please!!!

My husband has only been to NYC once for work and didn't really get to explore the city. I told him about Keen's and although he loves steak I think he feels that maybe only Texas can do it right. He is weird that way. I happen to love Boathouse and I really want to take him there because its sooo beautiful...especially at nightfall on the water. I have been to the Met twice already this year so I am really hoping he will just want to go to the natural history one. he would be more into that anyway. I checked out almost everyones suggestions and they all look great. I really want to eat my way through the city this time. I would love to know where to eat around Battery Park. I was thinking a very casual lunch that is truly delicious. Is Fig and Olive not good?? We eat Mexican food and steak all the time and I was thinking that maybe we shouldn't even bother with steak on this trip. i would also love to know about the best brunches in the city.

We are staying off 56th and seventh avenue....I wanted to go to boathouse so that i could walk through the park and maybe visit the met and the museum of natural history. we are not sure exactly what museums yet but i know for sure natural history. maybe i should try and go shopping on fri or monday to beat the crowds. can anyone recommend a good brunch in Soho?? the yankee game is at one and we have the entire day and night to do whatever. we love taking the subway and it would give us a chance to relax. i have never heard of governors island and i will check that out. we are tourists and we don't really mind the whole scene.

I am thrilled to be going to NYC for the third time and this time my hubby is coming with!!! We are both from Texas and we love to eat!!! We are arriving on a Thursday and leaving Tuesday. We both do not really like fast food but we do like burgers if we do eat take out. Our favorite restaurants here are Ruth Chris, Houstons, Maggianos, Corner Bakery, Grimaldis, and Fogo de Chao. We are staying in Midtown and if the food is good we will venture out. My husband just loves meat in general and I love chicken. We would like to keep our dinner meals under 100 dollars.

Thurday: I was thinking Fig and Olive for dinner (I think we will be tired and jet lagged and it is close to our hotel.

Friday: We are going museums and I was thinking maybe Boathouse for lunch and we have reservations at STK for dinner.

Sat: shopping in Soho or Bloomingdales...was thinking about Serendipity for desert not really sure about lunch and dinner.

Sunday: We are going to the Yankee game and then probably after Coney Island

Monday: We have no plans but for sure I know I will be at Columbia in the early evening and need a rec for dinner.

Tuesday we leave and I was thinking Sarabeths for breakfast.

Any ideas are helpful and we love PIZZA!!!!! I heard that OTTO is good. For lunch I would like to keep it really fresh like salad or sandwiches. My hubby loves steaks!!!! I also need an req for somewhere near Battery Park =)
