family lunch in Baltimore
We'll be returning to Baltimore (my home town) next Wednesday for the holiday and have a day to play in the city before meeting up with family. We're looking for a really good, but somewhat kid-friendly place for lunch (toddler and a 4yo). I have some ideas, but it's been a long time. We usually just go to Lexington Market for crabcakes or to Belvedere Square for sandwiches/soup. This time we'd like something sit-down. We're flexible as to area and type of cuisine, but no chains please. Thanks!

Just out of curiosity, have you tried Neopol at Belvedere Square? No, it's not sit down, but has replaced Atwater's as my favorite place there.
Miss Shirley's comes to mind as a good place for a family lunch.
Mama's on the Half Shell gets a lot of love. I'm certainly in the minority, but I think it's overrated. I've always found the food to be either bland or really oily.

Woodberry Kitchen has a kids menu, crayons, housemade fruit sodas, and is large and loud enough for the Sat/Sun brunch to work well.
Harbor East has two places that work well for kids (though both, admittedly, are part of mini-chains): Lebanese Taverna has lots of room at lunch, with lots of small plates for kids to eat through. Kids like the music and the food (lots of fried stuff) at Ra.
