Three Days in DC

We're from NYC suburbs and taking our first family visit to DC next week while the kids are on spring break. We'll be staying in a hotel near Fifteenth and M, and will be there Tuesday night through Friday morning. We'll be doing the big tourist activities: the Capitol, Library of Congress, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, Washington Monument. Smithsonian Air and Space and Natural History Museums, Spy Museum, etc. My wife and I love good food, but our boys are 8 and 10 and are not super adventurous food-wise (although they occasionally surprise us). I'd like to get recommendations for the following:

1. Good sit-down breakfast picks near our hotel;
2. Casual lunch spots in the downtown area we can go to during our days of sightseeing;
3. Dinner choices, both casual and better places that are not too (in the words of my 8-year-old) "fancy-pants" (i.e., no uniformed waiters, no hushed atmosphere, not super-adult). These can be in the area of our hotel, but we are also fine with hopping in a taxi to go someplace worth the ride.

We're looking forward to our trip, and any and all suggestions will be most sincerely appreciated.
