Downtown Seattle for a week

Hey all, the wife and I will be staying in downtown Seattle from tomorow Wed thru next Wed. Coming from Albuquerque and Have never been here. So our hotel is the Camlin on 9th and Pike Street. Where are some of the good local places to chow down at? So far the plans are Pike Place Market, ID, the Seattle Center, and Pioneer Square to grab a Utilikilt. So thats where we're going to be around. No car and I have to hit Elliots oyster happy hour. And has anyone been to Bernard's on Seneca?
