Fig Tree, although I haven't been there in a while. But it's a nice, intimate atmosphere and the food was always bangin'.
Carpe Diem, for the same reasons above.
Barringtons - small, intimate and French-inspired. They usually have foie gras - which is all that is needed to get my attention. ;-)
Bistro La Bon - just a block up from Soul Gastrolounge and, although I've not been yet, I've heard they do everything well and the menu looks tempting.
Halcyon, the restaurant at the new Mint Museum downtown has an amazing view and of course Marc Jacksina is doing the food so it's creative, local and damned good.
