Dear PoP – Kid Friendly Dining?

“Dear PoP,

I’m in a pinch!

I am a childless 14th & U Street resident and have family coming to visit next week with their 5 year old son. I’m usually an ace at picking restaurants in the city to take out-of-town guests to, but I find myself stumped as to a place for dinner that has great food for the adults in my party but would also have some kid-friendly options like chicken fingers, mac n’ cheese, grilled cheese, pizza and such for the little guy (who is GREAT at restaurants and loves eating out, especially if one of those essentials is available).

I’m afraid that the dinner menus at most of the restaurants in the area that we love aren’t really all that kid friendly.

Can anyone recommend a good restaurant that fits the bill?”

I know on H St, NE the Argonaut is a favorite of some of my friends who have kids. I also think the Diner in Adams Morgan would also be a very safe pick but that obviously wouldn’t be considered great food. This question is really a much more difficult one – who has great food that would also have options for children? Palena

But seriously for those who’ve been in this situation or for those with kids – where’s the best restaurant you’ve eaten at that also options for kids?
