Philly Chowhound needs Minneapolis suggestions

My husband and I will be spending four days in Minneapolis/St. Paul at the beginning of June, and I love planning ahead. I've been reading your Board and enjoying it!

Here is our schedule:

We'll arrive on a Monday, probably late afternoon, staying at the Graves601 Hotel. It would be nice to have dinner not too far away; we could walk or take public transportation. I'm sure we won't feel like getting dressed up. (We will have a car, but we'll be tired.)

Tuesday: we have a free evening and can enjoy a leisurely dinner. Would you suggest Chambers Kitchen? Somewhere you like better?

Wednesday: we have 7;30 tickets for the Guthrie. I think we would be comfortable if we could eat fairly close to it, probably about 5:30.

Thursday: we have 7:30 tickets for your wonderful orchestra. Again, we would like to eat somewhere near the performance, if that is possible.

Breakfast: any suggestions near our hotel? I know we will get to Hell's Kitchen, even if it's not very close. We're not much for big lunches since we'll be eating all those dinners out.

About us: we're seniors, and not too interested in places that are hugely noisy and a "scene." We eat all kinds of things - Philly is a great restaurant town these days - but don't prefer Mexican or Indian. (I'm not good at spicy.)
Asian is okay if it's really wonderful, because we get such good Asian food at home.
Fusion is always fine, as is Italian, French, Continental, etc.

Hope you can help! Thanks.
