Need finishing touches for trip this weekend

vonger44 | Jan 31, 2012 10:33 AM

Hello Seattle Chowhounders, my wife and I are flying in sans kids from Southern California for a short birthday weekend. I usually have more time to prepare but this trip was a bit spontaneous and could use a little assistance. Thankfully a few recent threads have asked for similar information so I was able to do some research as well as from a few friends who used to live in Seattle. We are staying at Inn at the Market from for 2 nights so will be hitting the town from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning. We enjoy all types of cuisine from hole in the walls to nicer places but really looking for places that represent what Seattle has to offer. We've also lived in Chicago and New York. So here's what I have planned to far though I wish we were staying longer.
Friday Lunch: Matt's at the Market
Friday Dinner: The Palace Kitchen or Quinns
Sat Breakfast: Eat at Lowells or Lola or Sitka and Spruce (brunch)
Sat Lunch: Revel
Sat Dinner: The Palace Kitchen, Quinns, Poppy, or Book BIndery
Sun Brunch: Eat at Lowells or Lola
Snacks: Elliot's Oysters , Donuts
We prefer to walk or take short cab rides, are cabs readily available in downtown Seattle ? Since I planned this trip around eats, any ideas on local attractions nearby will be lovely. Would you replace any of my selections for a " must eat " place or would do you change the order of any of the places ?
I've been to Seattle only once years ago on the way to Vancouver and greatly looking forward to our visit. Thanks so much !
