Manhattan Mad Men Tour: Fellow I know coming into town is a huge Mad Men buff. I'd like to show him around places that evoke the show's era and style. What places are like the Campbell apartment, the Pierre, the Oak Room, and such? Is it even possible to do it on a budget?

I know the show is shot in L.A but they take a lot of the interiors from actual ones from the time. Any of those swanky oak-filled lobbies or Colonial Revival restaurants still around? Mid-Century modern gems?
Not adverse to going to the other Boroughs but Manhattan is preferred.
Ideally, these should be places where one could have one pricey drink or a quick lunch at the bar to save costs. We're not goin' to the Regency cabaret.
Not High-end but 60s eras coffeeshop, diners, and places that look like they *should* be filled with smoke are also welcome.
iconic skyline views are doubleplus good.
