23rd st. in Crystal City - oasis or wasteland?

I'm going to be in DC with my husband and 3-year-old for Labor Day weekend, and we're staying at the Embassy Suites in Crystal City. I've seen a number of listings for restaurants on 23rd St. but since this is a good 10-block hike from the hotel, I would rather know in advance if it is worth the time and trouble -- and where I should go.

As an overview, we like most ethnic and non-chain food and the kid, while not perfect behavior-wise, has a pretty adventurous palate. We love Bread Line, Teaism and Queen Bee (to give you an idea), but since it's a short stay we don't want to waste a dinner on something that's inconvenient AND mediocre. Inexpensive to moderate restaurants would be a plus.
