Emergency recommendations! 4 days "Downtown Vancouver"

I will be in Vancouver this Thursday till Sunday. I work in the restaurant and love to eat out and see what others are doing. My Mother, on the otherhand, likes more home cooked meals, nothing too fancy nor ethnic. Italian, French, Spanish, Seafood Places are some of my thoughts. I have been looking through the forums, but quite frankly am running out of time, to reserve for the weekend. With that being said I am interested in spending on maybe 1 fine dining meal, but would like to keep dinner more at casual fine dining($20-$30entrees) and breakfast and lunch cheaper. ($10-15). We are staying at Pan Pacific and would like to have our breakfasts and dinners close by. For lunch, we will be touring Stanley Park and Granville, and Chinatown.

Here is what I have in mind so far...

I think Mom would really love Lupo and Italian Kitchen, but here are others I think have a good menu for the both of us.
Market (more for me, hearing about that chocolate cake!!!)
Go Fish
Rain City Grill
Five Sails??? for the prices, I think rain City may accomadate my Mother more, but conviently close)
Fish house Stanley Park (We arrive thurday at noon and will be ready for a 3 course meal, which I saw advertised for summer $30) ?? can we go in out track suit since we will be heading out there to rent bikes?
Terra Breads-Granville
Scuie- pizza and snacks
Cobre Nuevo Latino
Caffe Arttigiano

Please tell me if I am on the right track and if there is anything I am missing. Are there any fabulous places really close to our hotel that we must have for any budget?? Thanks so much for the help! i should've done my research earlier since Vancouver has so much to offer.
