Unique LA/OC Restaurants/Sushi Places

So I know this is a bit broad... let me give you a little background as to what I am searching for :)

Im taking this boy out for his bday (which happens to be on a tuesday - wa wa waa). We've only been dating 2 months so nothing to extravagent, but something a little nicer than normal date status. That being said Im looking for a dinner place that is a little unique... e.g Bonaventure Brewing is cool because of the beer, patio, and ambience being in the middle of downtown LA (but we've both been there so not an option).... found a place called La Cave in costa mesa which seems cool because its underground, red lighting, swanky entertainment but its pretty pricey....So you can see im just looking for something a little different, one could say "special" :)

We're located in Long Beach, so anywhere within reasonable driving distance to either LA or OC on a Tuesday after work would be doable.

How does the sushi come into this? Well... he loves it and I dont haha - so I thought it would be nice to take him to something that would be for him. Im sure I can find some non-sushi food on a menu, right? But so if any of you also know of any unique (shark tanks? great ocean view? something with an x factor) that is a sushi place, I would also consider that as well.

Oh, price... I guess moderate? $40-$60 for two sounds reasonable? Preferably less if I could swing it lol :)
