Twin Cities: Looking for real good American food

I read in the Strib that A Rebours co-owner Doug Anderson is planning a new restaurant for which he promises an American classics menu "with no trace of irony," featuring roast chicken, chopped liver, potato pancakes, and more (but "no Ahi tuna").

After I stopped laughing, I started wondering... Where can I go right now for good, un-ironic American food, especially for lunch and dinner?

I don't want burger joints, pizza, or palaces of short-order, high-fat cooking. Or cookie-cutter restaurants with chain-like food. And I'm not looking for upscale gourmet (much as I love them, Alma's and 112 Eatery don't fit the bill for this quest).

Basically, I'm looking for something better than Key's and less fancy than Jax.

Ideas?

Thanks,
Anne
