What are some of the best mid-priced restaurants in DC?

What do you consider mid-priced restaurants in DC? What are good places to go (maybe neighborhood places or smaller places) that have good food at a reasonable price? I'm thinking along the lines of Two Amy's, Cafe Deluxe, Sette, etc. Places where you can get a range of food and not end up dropping $22 for an entree, but also not be at a place that's just (barely) a step up from fast food.

    Dino in Cleveland Park. I can't reccomend this place enough. I think Zaytanya is pretty reasonable, though some might disagree with me there. I usually get out of there pretty cheaply. Also, I admit it, I like Boulevard Woodgrill in Clarendon.

      I like Domku in Petworth, Tonic in Mt. Pleasant, and Saint Ex on 14th (with entrees hovering around the $20 mark).

        Logan's Tavern is a great option - always have a good meal there and they have a great environment. Not sure they take reservations though and the bar is a little small if you have to wait.

          Definitely agree with Dino. I'd add Colorado Kitchen and Indique to this list -

            What about Chef Geoff's? I am always surprised at the reasonable prices. And, of course, if you don't mind the wait, Pasta Mia.

              I'll add:
              Nam Viet
              Churriera Madrid
              Amma's Vegetarian Kitchen

                The GAR places I've been to live up to that standard; Artie's, Sweetwater, etc.

                Del Merei Grill seems to me to be in that range as well.

                I concur with Nam Viet - and of course multiple other places serving vietnamese, thai, salvadoran, etc.

                  I agree that the Del Merei Grille is in that price range and has great food (terrific Southern sides) and excellent service - you might also consider RT's and the Evening Star Cafe - in the same neighborhood - on Mt. Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray section of Alexandria.
