Need a fun/great NYC restaurant suggestion

My husband and I are coming to NYC to celebrate our 20th anniversary.

Thanks to all you readers, I got a great hotel in midtown: The Library at 299 Madison Avenue at 41st Street. I am 2nd on the wait list for Per Se for Saturday night. What I'd love now from you is a suggestion of a fun place we can eat on Friday night that may be near our hotel (quite able to walk long distances), and any other suggestions you may have for breakfasts and lunches while we're in the city. We are adventuresome eaters and like to try new things.

Also, if we don't get THE call from Per Se, any other ideas of someplace amazing that we can book for our anniversary dinner?

Thanks, you are all an amazing resource!
