Coming to Seattle TOMORROW and would love some recs :)

Hi everyone - I should have sent this much, much sooner but time got away from me.... but I am coming to Seattle tomorrow morning from LA with my boyfriend and we are so excited - we've never been here!

I would love your opinion on what I've tentatively decided on, but am completely open to other suggestions....

Saturday - we arrive around 1. I'm thinking a late lunch at Serious Pies since we're staying downtown and it should be quick to get to.

Saturday night - late dinner at Tavolata - or should we go to Staple & Fancy instead? Another option is Revel - is there something/anything cute around there that we could walk around and see while we wait for a table (since they don't take reservations)?

Now here's where it gets tricky. On Sunday afternoon my wonderful mother and extremely picky grandmother are arriving to join us.

I think Sunday while we wait for them we will probably head to the market to walk around and eat. I want to hit up Pike Place Chowder and Pirosky Pirosky for sure!

We are planning on going to Purple Cafe for dinner. Is that a good choice for a grandmother? :) If not, can you recommend something else?

Monday - do you have any recommendations for a great brunch spot nearby the Alexis Hotel, preferably one with seafood?

And when would be the best time to try and hop over to Walrus and the Carpenter so I can eat oysters? Barring that, can you recommend a place in the market for oysters so I can get my fix?

Thank you, THANK YOU in advance for your help. I can't wait to explore your beautiful city!
