PDX hound coming to Philly

I'm originally from PA but its been a while since I've been in Philly with time to eat...I've been checking the PA board and here's what I'm thinking/needing help with:

I'm staying at Loew's downtown for four days first week in March. Breakfast and lunch seems pretty much covered by RTM, I've had the roast pork and can't wait for more (do they still have the greens?). I'm in need of two different type of dinners:

One for a small group, I'm thinking a good BYOB, are there any within walking distance, if not what's worth traveling for? Related, is there a liquor store downtown near the hotel? Osteria also seemed like it might fit the bill...

Two, on the Friday night I'm going to have a pretty large group 8-12 to feed after a drinks party at the hotel. Last year in Chicago we went to one of popular big greek places and it worked well, better than decent food at a restaurant used to dealing efficiently with a big, polite, but somewhat boisterous, group. Looking at the board, it seems like Vietnam might fit the bill for this, thoughts or other suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
