Suggestions: moderate dinner for 16 near loop

Help! My oldest friend is getting married Saturday Sept. 1 in Chicago. I'm a foodie from Boston charged with finding a place for Friday night dinner for out of towners and bride and groom, about 14-16 people on Friday 8/31.

This is not a traditional wedding, nor a traditional rehearsal dinner. It will be informal and probably people will pay for themselves or if I can get it cheap enough, maybe I'll host. I don't know all of the people but was told that a few are not into spicy food, too bad! Bride wants to eat early so she's home by 9pm and wants something quiet. Searched this site and thought of Greek town--Greek Islands or Costas-- but wonder if they are too boisterous and tho I grew up in Chicago my geography is bad, seems like it might be too long of a trek?

Most people are staying at Club Quarters on 111 W Adams St, near LaSalle. It would be great to get a place that's is walking distance or easy cab ride.

I really appreciate any ideas or help you can give me. Thanks so much!
