How much money are you looking to spend?  I could rattle off a million restaurant names...

My fellow Philadelphians will kill me for going straight to the easy answer, but you could try the Continental or Continental Midtown, assuming you can get a reservation.  It's in your price range and fits neatly in the "funky American food" category.  It's also one of Steven Starr's restaurants (http://www.starr-restaurant.com/).

I'd also recommend Valanni (mediterranean-influenced), Mixto (Cuban and other Latin American fare), Jones (another Steven Starr place), and, though I haven't been to it since new owners took over, Astral Plane (vegetarian-friendly, at least in its previous incarnation).
