DC eats with kids

cmj | Jun 9, 2008 11:47 AM

We're traveling to DC this weekend (arriving on Saturday and leaving on Tuesday) and I'm looking for restaurant recommendations. My kids are 11 and 8 and are very well behaved in restaurants of all kinds (and I know a lot of people say that but it's really true; we're a family of food-lovers and they know restaurant behavior). They're both very good eaters and will try pretty much anything, so if you have kind of off-the-wall suggestions, I'll welcome those as well.

What I'm mostly looking for is bistro fare, Mexican, Indian, hole-in-the-wall diners, and seafood places. I've checked out other threads and found Teaism, Jaleo, Andale, Bistro du Coin, Montmartre, Ben's Chili Bowl, and Pesce. 2 Amys was also recommended and we'll try to fit that in at some point. If all those places are still around, great, but I'd love to hear more!

What I don't want is someplace stuffy where diners will glare at me because I brought my kids along. I also don't want chains or fast food (unless it's really good ethnic fast food). We'll have a car and we're staying on 16th St. NW. Also consider that we'll be doing all the sights as well.

Thanks so much!
