I'm looking for a rec for mid-priced sushi in Marina Del Rey or Santa Monica. Someone is taking me out for my bday and it's my choice so I don't want to go somewhere pricey. I'd like it to be good though, of course. All of us aren't super adventerous in the land of sushi, so a restaurant being extremely authentic and/or having unusual items on their menu isn't that important to us. Would like a place that lends itself to conversation with good service. A "pushy" chef (as has been described in recent posts) might not be a fit for this occasion at least, since we'll want to play catch-up and kind of be left alone.
