3 Nights in DC - please review my dining choices

My husband, 6 year old daughter and I will be in Washington, DC for 3 nights in April. My daughter is well-behaved and an adventurous eater, but she certainly has her limits, so I'm trying to stay away from very fancy/long meals. My daughter's favorite food is Indian and mine is Turkish.

I've made reservations at 6:00 pm (to account for the child in tow) at Rasika, Zaytina and Birch & Barley.

Do you all have any thoughts about these choices, especially given that we will have a child with us?

Thanks in advance.

  1. I think those places should be fine for a child at 6:00 and they are all good choices. Another place you might want to consider if you have the time is the Cafe Divan in Georgetown (Turkish).

    1. Zaytina will be more than fine with a child -- I just took 3 of them there and they were delighted with being able to order small plates and with the bread service (warm pitas dipped in oil). Rasika is more formal and not much to do or look at for a kid I wouldn't think, but it certainly isn't stuffy and the food is top notch (and won't take forever to arrive).

      1. yup good calls each (well I can't speak for Birch + Barley)

        1. Good choices with a six-year-old -- although on 14th Street, Estadio might be more interesting for her than B&B. You should also go to 2 Amys -- she'll love the pizza; you should order as many "little plates" as you can. And the ice cream.

          1. re: Marty L.

            Estadio looks like a great choice for her and is less than 2 blocks from our hotel. I think I may replace B&B with Estadio. Thanks for the tip!
