Anything good near Hotel Wales on UES?

Sarabeth is downstairs, which is quite good. So is Paola's which I would not recommend.

Please help me decide on Italian for my birthday

I had a memorably delicious lunch at Ai Fiori and a forgettable dinner there too.

Plain old chocolate cake in Manhattan

You want Good Enough to Eat on the UWS. You described their chocolate cake perfectly.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I vote for Levain also. If you prefer crispy, go to Pain Quotidien.

doughnut plant vs dough

Dough wins by a mile, with Dough Loco a close second. Donut Plant donuts are tough.

Croissants revisited (SOHO)

D&D didn't make their own croissants until about a year ago. They are a totally different animal now.

Low-key pub with great burgers and beer

I ate at BH Burger on W. 43rd, just off Times Square yesterday. The burger was terrific and the beer selection was excellent.

Croissants revisited (SOHO)

Dean and DeLuca now make their own croissants, and they are as good as anything I've encountered in Manhattan.

Why isn't Jungsik receiving more attention?

My husband and I loved our dinner there. It's definitely a special-occasion restaurant, but it was his birthday and thus qualified.

best spaghetti bolognese?

Bolognese means that it comes from Bologna, which is in Emilia-Romagna. That said, Bar Pitti on 6th Avenue and Bleecker is a Sienese restaurant and is dependable and often wonderful if you order the specials. No reservations unless you have a big party.
