Out of towner challenge!

We're having something of a family reunion in Philly in early August, and are looking for someplace to host a group of 13 for dinner. The problem is that the food preferences are all over the place, ranging from my foodie wife and teens (last place visited and loved was Alla Spina), all the way to the two teenaged cousins who eat basically burgers, peanut butter and pasta. I know we could do some horrid chain like a Ruby Tuesday or O'Charley's or whatever the Philly equivalent and torture my family. But does anyone have any better ideas? Maybe old fashioned Italian? A gourmet burger/gastropub kind of place (we could do cheesesteaks, but I want someplace where folks can sit and talk for a whiile, not just gulp and run)? Staying at the Four Seasons so Center City or Manayunk are easily accessible. Thanks!
