Beijing with toddler in tow

We're making a (somewhat) last minute trip in a couple of weeks and will have 6 days in Beijing. We're traveling with our 3-year-old. I'm going through the posts here trying to make notes. Fortunately she eats what we eat so really the only zinger is going to be jet lag. We're going to stay near Wangfujing. Would love some restaurant ideas in the vicinity. FWIW, when we were in Beijing two years ago we had dinner at The Courtyard one night. The food was nice and the atmosphere was very cool but the only people there were Americans and it felt a little weird. (And I wouldn't go there with a 3yo, even though ours, of course, behaves impeccably...!) We had Peking Duck that was fantastic at a small restaurant perhaps 10 minutes walk from the Friendship store - I'll never find it again. What's the verdict on street food? The stuff at the night market near our hotel looked fantastic but we were uber cautious.
