Traditional menu, good service, quiet atmosphere, moderate price - Looking for ideas

Hi all, I'm going to the flower show with my 85 year old grandmother next week. I'm trying to think of a good spot to take her. My criteria are something like this:

Good, sophisticated but not overly adventurous food (Lacroix, eg, is a bit too modern)
Traditional menu - no small plates or family style
Good service
DInner plates in the $20-25 region, give or take

It sounds like a tall order but she enjoyed Bistrot La Minette when we took her there, which pretty much nailed this combo even though its on the higher side price wise. She'd love Parc if it wasn't insanely loud. Places like Capitol Grill, Estia, Fountian, etc would be perfect except for the high price tags.

Cuisine type is flexible, including ethnic, as long as there is variety on the menu. Location is not especially important as we will be cabbing it; can go a little bit out of Center City. This will be a weekday. BYOB is ok. Chains are fine for this one.
