Chill restaurant recommendations

Besides Dick's and things at the Pike Place Market, are there any restaurants that I should try in Seattle?  I'll be mostly eating by myself, so I'd prefer some place chill and not too fancy, if at all.  Thanks!

Seattle (Washington)

Dick's Drive-In Restaurants is awesome.  My parents took me there in the 60's.  Great burger.

Check out the biscuits at Serious Pie for breakfast - so tasty.  Cafe Presse is a weekend staple for me.  French influenced bistro. Great french brunch.   Le Pichet is one of the best classic French bistros in town. Casual.  

Top Pot Doughnuts is not to be missed.  My pals own that joint.Period.   Revel is bustling Korean yummyness in the Fremont Neighborhood.  

Via Tribunali makes the best Pizza in town. Neopolitan thin crust style. Open late.

Matt's in The Market is the best tourist location restaurant that the tourists don't know about.  Directly overlooking the Public Market.  Great eats, people.  Lunch is a score too.

La Carta De Oaxaca has amazing Oacaxan mexican style food - NOT tex mex style.  Mole is to die for, so are house maragritas.  Cheap and so tasty.  Not fancy, but one of the most tasty AND consistent restaurants in Seattle.  This ain't burrito's - it's Oaxacan.  Loud, family style seating.  Bustling and festive.

Paseo Caribbean Restaurant has the best sammys ever.  Mind blowing Caribbean sandwiches and food bowls. Cheap, divey, but prepare to stand in line with the other locals who know what's up...

If you see a long line in the streets of Seattle you can bet Marination Food Truck is on the other end. Their tacos and sliders are great. I love the spicy pork tacos.

If you want some pizza, go to Serious Pie. I’m a pizza freak, and Tom Douglas does some of the country’s best here. Love the blistery, hand-made crusts, and the house-cured guanciale pie with baby arugula and two eggs (you gotta dunk the crust) is worth the airfare to Seattle alone.

Armandino's Salumi is the home base of Mario Batali's dad's cured Italian meats. C’mon! How cool is that?!
