King E. places - Hiro Sushi, Chocolat, La Maquette, Biagio?

Thoughts on places to eat on King E. (more for lunch, but dinner also)? Never been to any of these places. Other suggestions? Any cheap jewels?

I was at a Cdn Cancer Wine & Food event last week in St. Lawrence Hall. Biagio was one of the food donors and the risotto they served was IMO awful - the worst I have ever tasted - bland, overcooked, runny... I took one bite, wanted to spit it out, and certainly didn't finish the rest of the scoop I was served.
Fortunately, I had some good wine to get rid of the awful taste!

    I think everyone knows my suggestion... :-)

    Laide - 1 block north of King on Adelaide at Jarvis... Not open for Lunch but great for dinner.

      If you are into sushi, Hiro's is a must. Toronto is blessed with choice; Kaji is the recent darling. However, Hiro's has an international reputation. Chairmen of Japanese corporations seek him out when they are in town. A better endorsement may be that baseballers Matsui (Yankees) and Ichiro (Mariners) eat lunch and dinner at Hiro's when their teams are in town...these guys can afford to eat anywhere!!
