Just go to Stone Street (like Ulysses or any of the other bars), actually just do a mini pub crawl on Stone Street... It's a ton of fun ranging from a meat market to turns into a disaster if you stay past 8pm.
Skip the expensive steak house and do what the locals do... stay out too late, drink too much and then eat "street meat" (from a vending cart) at midnight or 1am. Just remember to keep a $5 or $10 in your wallet - don't spend it all because whether you are buying pizza slices or street meat it'll be cash only.
If you want to get ambitious you can head to Johnny Utah's in midtown and get thrown off the mechanical bull. If you are going to go that route I would highly recommend having a few pints down on Stone Street first so that as you walk out to Broadway to catch a cab you think it's a good idea to try and ride the Wall Street Bull for practice... Just don't touch the bull's balls... Almost every trader I know has pissed on them...
If that isn't your thing or if Stone Street gets old then there are a ton of great steak houses around that area.
This is really good advice... It should be stickied... send me a PM if you are going to do any of the above - I may be already in the area.
