I have examples for Cochin (with kmath) and Optima (with iwona) here: http://www.verbeia.com/tex/
Baskerville looks good with txfonts, but my example is for Adobe New Baskerville, not the version that comes with OS X.
I haven't gotten around to exploring the other OS X fonts. I also recently bought the Adobe Type Basics pack, which has things like Kepler and Caslon Pro.
If I work out some good TeX options there, I will post them to the URL above.
