Quiet lunch near 400 Arch

Meeting family from out of town at Wyndham downtown. Looking for a lunch spot close by on a Saturday. It will be group of 10±, so general fair options probably best so something for everyone.

Would like noise level low so we can carry on conversation :-)

Thanks for any suggestions!

    About 2 blocks N of the Wyndham is Radicchio (4th and Wood Sts), an excellent BYO Italian. It can be pretty noisy when full, but not so likely during lunch.

      Thanks for the reply. There are some mobility issues as well so we're looking as close as possible. I'm going to add this one to the list.

        Radicchio's very good and is generally pretty empty on Saturday at lunch.

        Not much around that area to choose from though!

        Went there yesterday for brunch & really enjoyed. It's a small place; not easy to get 10 seated together. It's also not quiet.
