For that kind of money, check out Trek's District line. The top model has a belt drive that is dead silent and very fun to ride.
Masi has a Speciale Commuter that's very versatile. It'll take fenders and racks, it's got brakes.
Bianchi San Jose has a flip flop hub so you can run singlespeed or fixed. Can take wider tires if you've got bad roads.
Check out IRO or the Specialized Langster or a Surly frame and build it up yourself. Cannondale, Giant, Felt, Fuji, etc. all make singlespeed bikes. Test ride a bunch, read all about them. Get the one that's the most fun for you to ride and ignore our recommendations.
