What are some good dates (lunch, dinner, day, etc) in NYC?

In the first week of June I am going to NYC to visit a girl who I am hoping to woo. I have a pretty open window: the first day we are meeting is June 4th, and I'll be leaving that Sunday. Snowflake details inside.

This is a girl I have known for a very long time and, for various reasons, we never really "gave it a shot." She essentially wants me to court her, and as such I will go to NYC and take her on a series of dates (we only have it set up to meet on Wednesday, but assuming that goes well will continue to see each other). Either way, I'm not sure what to do! She has lived in NYC all of her life and while I have been to NYC a number of times, do not know the city nearly as well. I'm trying to figure out what might be a good way to spend that first day together... I know she doesn't like super heavy food, she likes lighter meals (think Japanese), that sort of thing. She does like desert, but I shouldn't go overly heavy I think. She's not a big museum person. I'm at a big loss of what sorts of restaurants might be good, what parts of the city might be fun to walk around... Further, as the long weekend progresses, I'm not sure what else we can do. We can only walk around so much, right? I know I'm not going to be able to "impress" her with anything in NY, so I think my main bar is to just have a lot of thoughtful, interesting things planned that will give us a chance to connect and enjoy each other's company. Oh, and she isn't really a drinker so potential ideas for non-alcoholic destinations after dinner would be really great. Maybe late night desert spots, cute cafes, somewhere romantic with a nice view, that sort of thing.
