atmospheric/romantic in little tokyo, chinatown, etc...

hi, fellow chowhounds!

i have a double-date tonight & frankly would love to get out of west hollywood. thinking it would be very cool to find an atmospheric/romantic restaurant that's "east" (say, between western and downtown), that's exotic & somehow sexy. (can be expensive or modest; doesn't have to be ethnic; a dimly-lit room would be nice.) for example, a cozy restaurant in little tokyo, chinatown, koreatown, etc. would be ideal.

please advise. i sincerely appreciate the help!

*BONUS QUESTION for the cognoscenti: any cool/fun/sexy places to get a drink in that part of town? i was thinking about the mountain bar in chinatown, or prive in k-town. (our group is mixed race, and we don't mind being the only non-ethnics in the place; in fact we'd kind of prefer it!) my ideal would be a dark cozy SAKE BAR somewhere in little tokyo... does such a place exist??

with much affection for my fellow foodies,
i remain,
