Visiting Philly with 6 yr old

Hi, My husband and I are visiting Philly this weekend, from NYC, with our 6 yr old son. We are staying at the Omni Hotel and need help with where to eat.

For one lunch we plan on going to the Reading Terminal Market to try the Roast pork sandwiches at DeNics.

We need help with 2 dinners (Thursday and Friday nights). I have reservations at both Zahav and Distrito (will cancel one of these) for Friday night. We are leaning towards Zahav but I want to make sure it is OK for a well behaved child.

Also, I am interested in going to The Good Dog or Grace Tavern, for Thursday night. Are they appropriate for kids? We would, of course go earlier (6ish) for dinner. Do I need to make a reservation?

Any other restaurants that I should think of going? What food is better in Philly than in NYC? Any good restaurants that are near our hotel? We like more neighborhood type restaurants, if that helps.
