Our family of four is traveling to Washington DC Mar 29 - Apr 6 and staying at the Embassy Suites Chevy Chase Paviliion. We will eat most of our dinners near the hotel but plan on eating most of our lunches near the museums and attractions we are visiting in the city.
I know we are visiting at a busy time with the Cherry Blossom Festival and spring break. We have a child with several food allergies(peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, soy protein, and bananas) and I have combed many listings to find restaurants with menus that look as if they carry foods that our family will like and that have many allergy safe options.
Will we need to make restaurant reservations for lunch? If so, how far in advance would you suggest? The restaurants we have so far on our list of options are Elephant & Castle, Open City, Georgia Brown's, We The Pizza, Founding Farmers, Legal Sea Foods, and Johnny Rockets.
Will we need reservations for dinner? If so, how far in advance? For dinner, we are considering, Maggiano's Little Italy, Range, Murphy's of DC, Capitol Grille (Chevy Chase) Clyde's at Chevy Chase. May also consider a dinner at Legal Sea Foods or Georgia Brown's in the city.
Any advice is greatly appreciated. TIA
