Probably a good idea -- trying to park in the touristy areas on a weekend is problematic. Walking, subway, cab will do everything you need to do.
Try one of the Vietnamese restaurants in Chinatown (Vietnam Palace, 222 North 11th Street) -- you'll be pleasantly surprised. Good upscale breakfast nook = Continental, at corner of 2nd and Market.
