T.G.I. Friday's,

Towsontowne Centre, 828-4556. This is a colorful, lively, noisy restaurant with eclectic fare. If you are eating out with children, the noise can be an advantage as your youngsters aren't likely to disturb anyone. If it's been a hard day, Friday's might be too chaotic. The menu offers something for almost anyone with sandwiches, entree salads, pasta, burgers, seafood and even Mexican and Oriental dishes. There is a separate children's menu -- served with crayons -- of interesting entrees and drinks at very reasonable prices. $inexpensive. (Last visited 9/90.) 4800 Roland Ave. "The Morg" (as it has been called for many of its 84 years) was once a tearoom, and an institution among preppy Roland Parkers. Now a full-scale restaurant, it still has its upper-crust pedigree and a conservative country decor. But the fare here surprises with its multi-ethnic influences, vivid palette, and inspired combinations. Imaginative dishes shine, but even a simple crab soup showed its class with ultra-fresh ingredients. $$moderate. (Last visited 9/90.)

LYNN WILLIAMS 505 S. Broadway. Cautious modesty is one of L'Auberge's many virtues. No one goes to L'Auberge to be seen eating in the simple, unpretentious rooms. All the better to leave the tables for diners who want foremost to eat well when they eat out. We enjoyed a first-rate carrot soup, a beautiful sausage-like warm pate in puff paste, a rabbit-and-filberts terrine with confident, clean tastes, medium rare duck breasts in duck broth and lime with wild mushrooms, and superb desserts. Ask for the raspberry vacherin. $$$expensive. (Last visited 8/90.)
