Lunch on Friday in 11th/12th with a 2-year-old

We are heading to Paris on Friday morning for a weekend a l'improviste; the fact that we'll be there for lunchtime AND are staying in a flat near the intersection of Ave Ledru-Rollin and Ave Daumesnil puts me within shouting distance of several restaurants I've been dying to try:

Le Tintilou
Qui Plume la Lune
Le Repaire de Cartouche

While it's no guarantee I can get a table at any of 'em, I'd love Hound thoughts on which would be the best for a 2 year old. Okay, "best" might be a stretch, but is there one that would be more tolerant of a kid's presence than others?

Fortified with crayons and cars, my son is usually good for the length of a decent lunch, but he's still prone to the odd holler (MOMMY! LOOK AT THAT!) and dropping of the aforementioned distractions on the floor.

I just don't want to offend anyone, so would prefer to avoid hushed and pristine temples, IYSWIM.

Secondly - has anyone been to la Biche au Bois recently? I haven't been for years, but figure it might be nice for Friday dinner once my husband joins us, as it's close to the flat.
