How large a group will you be?

Food preferences?

Could be from 10 to 40+ people, so maybe something with large outdoor area??? ... Relaxing atmosphere & basic American fare prob best since with hungry teen boys (like good hamburgers/sandwiches/soups/salads etc). Also heard "Chinatown" has good food & nearby, but would assume those places would be smaller?

Chinatown is walking distance from 400 Arch and would be a good choice. Suggest Lee How Fook which has a room large enough for 48. http://www.leehowfook.com/banquet/

You will need to firm up your numbers before you make reservations(you are not just expecting to be able to walk into a place with 40 people on a Saturday night are you?)

No ... Was not planning on walking in with 40+ ... Will have chance to talk to everyone Sat am, then, depending in group size, call around & see who might be able to accommodate us:)

Reservations, especially for larger groups, and especially for Saturday night, may be difficult to get on short notice.

Then anywhere with window ordering & outdoor seating??? Just open to any suggestions ... As I said, group could end up being much smaller

Maybe Triumph Brewing Company on Chestnut St. You could call before the weekend, explain the situation and its particulars. They have a lot of space so may be able to accommodate you, whatever your group size ends up being.
