6 "Kids" restaurants in Washington DC.
You say your kid is well-behaved, but what you mean is mostly well-behaved. And that’s all right, because we’ve found restaurants that can handle an occasional tantrum. These spots are casual, friendly, and won’t treat you like a pariah if someone at your table throws some spaghetti at the waiter.
Attached to the Carlyle Hotel in DuPont, The Riggsby does everything “classic” extremely well.
Texas Jack’s in Arlington is a bit fancier and more buttoned up than your typical BBQ joint, but the food is very good.
Pupatella doesn’t look like much from the outside, but it’s serving the best pizza in Arlington.
The Bullpen does music, cheap drinks, and bar food starting two hours before every Nats game. Go with a big group, and play some cornhole.
District Commons won’t blow you away, but it’s a reliable American spot in Foggy to take your parents or for a group dinner.
