Need advice for special dinner

We will be taking out a small group - 8 people - for a celebratory dinner on a Wednesday in January.
Of course we want the food to be very good, but we also want an atmosphere where we can have conversation.
We are considering the Fountain, Lacroix, or Le Bec Fin.
Which would you choose? Any other suggestions? We need to stay in Center City.
Those three are in about the same price category. Vetri would be twice as much, so we ruled that out.
Thanks in advance.

    If you do the prix fix at Le Bec Fin it is going to be the same price for all intents and purposes as Vetri, . For what its worth, the NY Times just did a short piece on LBF, asking the question does haute cuisine in the US have to be french inspired.
