Ottawa with kids - restaurant recos?

We're travelling to Ottawa (from Toronto) for the Canada Day weekend with our kids, 6, 4 and 2. Staying at a hotel downtown (minutes from Parliament Hill) from Wednesday evening to just after breakfast Saturday morning. I've looked through a few Ottawa food blogs and feel a bit overwhelmed so I'm hoping for some decent, interesting, not overly-expensive (and cheap is also acceptable!), kid-friendly restaurant suggestions. They won't eat anything too spicy and are quite happy with Asian cuisine (although I've read that you don't really go to Ottawa for good Chinese food). I would love to get through the weekend without having to resort to McDonald's or other similar fast food chains.

Thanks for your help!

MMRuth - no particular type of food we'd like to try...we're in Toronto so the kids are exposed to some different types of food. We just want to make sure we try some quintessential new york foods.
Do people still like Shake Shack? More for hubby than the kids though! :)

I'm going to be in NYC for 3 days next week with my husband and 3 kids (4, 3 and 1). Other than Ellen's Stardust Diner and Katz's deli, I'm hoping to eat at little-ish places that are favored by the locals and not overly expensive. We definitely want a great New York Pizza and anything else that's "not to miss when in NYC". A suggestion or 2 in SOHO/Lower Manhattan, Midtown, the Upper East Side and the Upper West Side would be great.

Thanks for your help!
