We're visiting SD the second weekend of April for a conference of my wife's at the Sheraton on Harbor Island, bringing our 17-month-old with us. She eats everything (fed her rabbit sausages and nettle mashed potatoes at 10 months at Zuni Cafe in SF on another trip!), but want to find local spots with good food that also are okay with toddlers (high chairs, don't freak about a little messiness under the high chair, etc.).
Would love to not have to travel too-too far away from the hotel area for meals alone, but the maps I have show that downtown, Hillcrest, Little Italy, areas near the Park are all relatively close, right? Planning a trip to the Zoo. Also, any good takeout between the hotel and Oceanside for a visit to friends who just had a baby?
