Where to eat dinner before Monuments by Moonlight trolley tour (departs Union Station)?

We'll be in D.C. for our Spring Break with our kids (ages 9 & 11) and are looking for a place to eat dinner before the monuments at night tour. It departs Union Station, but not knowing D.C. at all, I don't know if we should try to eat nearby there, or some other area close by, or just wherever we want and then cab it over by 7:00. This is for Saturday night, and we don't want fast food. Doesn't have to be fancy by any means, but definitely would like to sit down, have a glass of wine. We're staying at the Park Hyatt if that helps.

Also, I'm looking for somewhere to have an early dinner Sunday after a late afternoon tour of the National Cathedral.

    1. For the tour near Union Station I would head to Art and Soul. It is walking distance to Union Station and should have plenty for you and the kids to choose from. Good, Southern cuisine by Chef Art Smith---a celebrity chef (Oprah's formed personal chef among other things!).

      1. For Sunday, after your Cathedral tour, you're just a few blocks from 2Amy's. Naples-style pizzas and spectacular small plates.

          This. The margherita pizza and the small plates at 2 Amys are outstanding.

        2. After the Cathedral, you can walk North to Cafe Deluxe, delicious and nice for adults & kids. have fun
