Need recommendations for inexpensive restaurants near Center City that can accomodate a group

I'm looking for recommendations for places to go with a group of up to 15 people. The criteria:It has to be within about four blocks of the Broad St. line or the Regional Rail stations. In addition, it must be reasonably quiet on a Wednesday night (quiet enough for adults to converse without having to say "what?" every two minutes), the top entree price shouldn't exceed $18/person, beer and wine should be available, and there should be at least something vegan on the menu. Any ideas?

  1. Perhaps Good Dog (15th between Locust and Walnut), would give you some space on the second or third floor?

    1. I would recommend Rangoon in Chinatown (112 N. 9th St.):

      Don't mind the circa 1992 website -- the food is delicious, very reasonable, and I helped plan a large group dinner there while conferencing in Philly a little while back.

      1. I would recommend Wok if you're in the mood for Chinese.
        I also had a group meet (at lunch) at Good Dog, and it worked out well. They have a nice beer selection and their fries are the best! (they are a mix of regular and sweet potato, and I can't get enough). The music is much lower upstairs. But this is more of a bar than a restaurant.
