DC with Toddler in Tow

It was a college budget back then and so long ago and not as into food as I am now. But the first and last place my parents took me in DC was Old Ebbitt Grill so we may go there for the nostalgia factor. I recall eating at Georgios (maybe?) on 20th maybe and liking that? A few Georgetown places, we would go to the lunch buffet at Filomenas, I worked at Peacock Cafe when it was just a little sandwich shop/juice bar, not what it seems to be now! Thanks, I have checked some of those other threads and will keep looking.

We will be spending 5 days in Dupont Circle with our 20 month toddler and other extended family (service at Arlington the reason for trip but will have time to explore/eat on own). My husband and I both went to GW but it's been a while (10+ years) since we have been back. Looking for places that would be good for breakfast, lunch or early dinner with the kid that are worthwhile for adults too. Did some searching on the board and other places came up with the following - Teaism, Jaleo, Tacke Box, Bistro Du Coin, Pizza Paradiso, Brassiere Beck, Founding Farmers, Tabard Inn, Noras. Thoughts on these? Also good places to do take out or gourmet market stuff in Dupont as we won't be out for dinner everynight. One day will be spent at the Zoo and and one at the Mall if recs specific to there. Thanks!

It has been a while since the hub and I have headed out to dinner so out of the loop on the new places. With the babysitter cost we need to keep it at about $100.00 for the both of us including a glass of wine and drink or two. We live at Pico and Fairfax and don't want to go more than about 10-15 mins in any direction. Some places we love - AOC, Hungry Cat, Jar, Pizzera Mozza but maybe want to try something new.
