Sushi with a child

Hi folks!

I live in Southern California and regularly dine at the local sushi places here that are very traditional sushi...so for those who have visited down here, places like Sushi Zo, Hiko Sushi, Echigo, Mori, Sasabune, Urasawa (for kaiseki), etc.

I will be moving up north to Seattle next month and am taking my wife, her mom, and my 6 year old son up north next weekend to take a look at houses, explore the area, etc.

I would like to try 1 or 2 nice sushi places while I'm up there.

For the research here on chowhound, it looks like Shiros will fit the bill nicely. I generally like to sit at the bar and order omakase. Since there will be 4 of us and 1 is a child, is this welcome at places like Shiros and others? In LA, it's mixed. Some places are cool with us having a 6 year old sitting with us at the bar even though he doesn't eat much sushi (he eats whatever other stuff they have like edamabe, some blue crab hand rolls, etc.) but others dislike it so we make sure to leave him with a babysitter.

He's very quiet and just sits there and plays video games on his nintendo with the sound turned off so he never bothers anyone.

We also typically reserve early seatings when the restaurant opens so the sushi bar is usually pretty empty (and you don't have couples out on dates, etc.).

Any recommendations on high quality sushi that won't have a problem with us bringing my son along?
