Kitchen \ Bar question

Thanks everyone for helping me out during this. Hopefully this will be the last question for awhile. I am going to be pulling wires for the Kitchen \ Bar area this weekend and just wanted to get some advice here is what I am thinking.

- Stove on it's own 40 amp circuit

- over range microwave on a 20 amp circuit along with an outlet for the Bar TV

- Dishwasher on it's own 15\20amp circuit (no other outlets) haven't decided if I am going to do a disposal or not, if I do it would be on this circuit.

- 2 20 amp circuits with first receptacle being CGFI and 3 or 4 outlets after per circuit along counter top every 4 feet as needed.

- Fridge on its own 20 amp circuit with an outlet for future use.

Does this look all right or can I combine anything to save wire\space?

Also, for the range wire is 8-3 what I need or do I need 4 conductor cable? What is the distance maximum that 8 gauge wire can be ran? It will be a little over a 30' run.

Thanks so much for all of the help! The knowledge has been invaluable.

Sounds good, 8-3 is fine for 30'....even longer
Everything you are doing is what I would do
Its above code to have the fridge & MW circuits, but a great idea
We do not intend to have a disposal either, but I will run a 20a circuit just in case for DW
