Big group, casual, something for everyone, nice but not too high end?

Anyone have any thoughts?

We'll be a party of 9, including a grandmother and a couple other less adventurous adults, and then about half the party who likes good food and is adventurous.

It's a celebratory dinner, so it should be nice, but probably shouldn't completely break the bank. We should all be able to hear each other, and it should be easy enough to maneuver my 91 year-old grandmother around (she can walk fine, but steps and tight spaces can be tough).

Of course, good food is a must. I'm thinking entrees in the $20-$30 range, reasonably priced but interesting wine list, and comfortable ambience without being staid or run down.

Any thoughts?

      Gramercy Tavern will treat you all quite well.

        I agree - although it is a bit out of the price range (the Tavern menu fits the bill, but I don't think we'll be able to just show up with a party of 9).
