Lunching with a 2 Year-Old in the East Bay and Marin

Sorry to start a new thread on a much-visited subject, but the new Search engine isn't as helpful as the old version. Anyway! My husband and I are looking to branch out with our 2 year-old daughter, and are mostly out and about at lunchtime, rather than in the evening. We live in San Rafael, but spend a lot of time in Berkeley, Oakland and nearby. Our daughter is a well-behaved, adventurous eater, so we're not necessarily looking for kids' menus, just a high chair and the possibility of some flexibility. We don't expect to be able trash the place or subject fellow diners to tantrums.

Just fyi, yesterday was her 2nd birthday, so we hit the Oakland Cesar on Piedmont along with my sister and her 1 year-old. The kids did great sitting on the bench with us, but they did struggle to get close enough to the table. It would have been an absolute breeze with a high chair.

If it helps, here are some of the restaurants we go to fairly often together: Sol Food, Om, Caffe Oggi, Marin Joe's, Boca, Mambo's, Avatar's, Vik's, Daimo, and, in pinch, Pasta Pomodoro (suprisingly good!).

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
