What's your favorite restaurants in the Dining Plan?

We have the free dining plan for this september and so far I've booked reservations at Chef Mickey, Kona Cafe, and Liberty Tree Tavern. I have 4 more dinners to book and looking for recommendations. Let me know your favorites that aren't already listed here.
Thanks so much....its been 5 years since my last visit to Disney!

Don't know your tastes or anything, but with 3 DxDDP trips under my belt, I've gone to a "few" places .

1 Credit:
Sanaa (Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village) - Quite different menu than most places and a great atmosphere. Service was top notch both times I went. Bonus of potentially being able to view the animals on the safari while you dine (note, potentially, not all tables have views, and the animals go in after dark).

Grand Floridian Cafe (Grand Floridian) - A nice, simple, bright restaurant with tasty food. Easy to get too/from via MK.

San Angel Inn (Mexico/Epcot... inside the pyramid) - Great atmosphere, great food, usually great service (2 out of the past 3 trips have had absolutely excellent service, on had acceptable but nothing special). Note that this is NOT your standard "TexMex" though and is much closer to traditional Mexican.

2 Credits (not very good deals on the DDP, but included anyway)
Yachtsman (Yacht Club Resort) - Good solid steak (not absolutely top of the line, but far from bad. Much better than Le Cellier ), nice and quiet, excellent service.

Artist Point - One of the best and probably simplest desserts of last year was here, the berry cobbler thingy. Beyond that, the buffalo tenderloin was very good. Two trips out of 3 years here, and both were excellent.

Next Trip: NOT Solo... 10/17-10/27 @ Pop/CBR split. This time with Brother, Sister-in-Law, Nephew, and Mom (well, at least mostly not solo.)
TRs: Learning to NOT Photograph Fireworks Behind Trees (Sept 2012 PTR (no TR... yet?)
New Camera? Sounds like a perfect excuse for another Disney trip! (Sept 2011 PTR/TR)

We loved Boma. It's an excellent buffet and Animal Kingdom Lodge is gorgeous! We liked it enough that it's a repeat for us this trip, and we don't go often.
