DC filter: I am heading out to a conference next week that will be held in DC and am looking for restaurants to visit and things to do with a toddler while there.

I'm travelling down there with my husband and 2 year old, plus I am pregnant, so drinking, sushi, lunch meats, are right out.
I know there are a ton of restaurants around the area, but remember from the last time I was there that I ended up somewhat overwhelmed by choices. Plus I don't necessarily want to spend a lot for each meal. My hotel is the Holiday Inn Capitol Hill (on C Street SW) and the conference is at the conference center.
Unfortunately the hotel doesn't have breakfast included, so I'd love to have a recommendation for somewhere nearby to get a bunch of muffins to eat in the morning.
Also, we need lunch and dinner recommendations. A couple nice meals would be good, but I don't know that I want to make every meal a production and we are on a somewhat tight budget so hugely expensive things are right out. We are fairly widespread in our eating and are carnivores, though I have the standard pregnancy restrictions, so cold lunch meat sandwiches are right out.
While I will be off science-ing my husband will be entertaining the toddler, he already has plans to hit the museums around, but any other suggestions of things for them to check out would be appreciated! Thanks!
