Fairmount area recs for a group (early) on New Years Eve

sockii | Dec 14, 201002:27 PM     9

OK, so I'm trying to organize an early (say, 5:30-6pm) dinner on New Years Eve for about 15 people. Mostly they are all out-of-towners planning on going to the Dada show at the North Star Bar later that night. I'm basically the only Philly person in the group, but I'm not overly familiar with the places in that area. Anyone have any recs on restaurants that would be good for this bunch? I've had one request for Italian food, but will take anything that is decent and likely to appeal to a broad crowd (and not be too expensive). I know a lot of places are doing special fixed-price menus that night, but maybe not until later in the night which is fine (I doubt most folks want to spend more than $20-25 a head, not counting alcohol). I just want to be able to get in and out with this group in about 2 hours time, and preferably somewhere with a bar (no BYOBs).

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
