Group Dining suggestions? Stanton Social a good option?

About 10 of us make up the former and current interns at a nonprofit organization, and we started to do an interns dinner every few months.. we're planning our third one and are looking for someplace thats easily accessible by train and not too out of the way for people that are coming from various parts of the city and outer boroughs.. also we'd like a place where there are a decent amount of entrees that are in the $15 or less price range, for the most part all of us are very open to any type of cuisine (the more ethnic the better in some cases).. last time we went to a Bangladeshi restaurant and before that it was a Lebanese restaurant, the food at the latter was rather expensive and not all that.. quite bland actually (our palettes tend to favor more flavor)

I did receive a suggestion for Isle (been there already, good food but to me the place is a little cozy for a party of 10 to be able to eat and talk to each other comfortably).. someone also mentioned Stanton Social, none of us have been there but I see from the website its very much targeted to large groups and sharing of items.. are the portions large enough to share amongst 10 ppl? or would we have to order multiples of each dish so that all 10 of us get to try a little of each thing?

We're probably going to go on a weekend or Friday night, so if a place is one of those that requires a month in advance reservation then definitely not happening.. hoping to schedule the dinner within the next week or the week after ;)
