First time to Pacific NorthWest....Seattle first stop!

My husband and I are visiting SEattle this summer . We will be staying in Seattle for three evenings and I really want to choose wisely on our dinner options. I have started to compile a list of places that I would like to try for our limited dinner meals :). ITalian cuisine is very important to me, and I would love to try out the amazing fish that Seattle has to offer. We try to stick to less expensive items for lunch and breakfast and then splurge with dinners. WE also plan to visit Mt. Rainier. We will also be staying at the Willows Lodge and having dinner at Herbfarm (I really hope it is as amazing as I have read. It is one of our "splurge meals" for our anniversary. . OUr budget in SEattle is about 120 dollars for dinner for two people. Here are the places on my list:

Spinasse (I made a reservation for this place. I think this is a "must " for me

Canlis? I am not sure about this. IT seems extremely expensive. I have read that the location is fantastic. Also...since this is my first time in Seattle, it might make for a memorable experience. This would be a "splurge" but I was also thinking of having drinks at the bar before dinner so that I could experience the location.

Toulouse Petit....Looks great and I also love their happy hour menu. We might do that instead of having dinner because there seems to be many options.

Boat street cafe? Looks great and I love the men
Bar del corso for lunch?
Pike Market (I am sure it is very "touristy" But I am a tourist after all! and i have read there are great places to check out

Salumi - another lunch sandwich spot. I am a native NY and I would like to try out papa Batali's famous cured meats!
Serious pie?
That is all I have at the moment....andy suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
