The PDF version of the manual can be downloaded from the various Nikon sites. (Great for quick searches.)

In the Picture Controls, you can choose 'monochrome'. This will affect the saved picture not just the display. While the JPG will forever be in black & white, the NEF file will contain the color and just have a flag that can be toggled.
