Tabrizi's, 1026 S. Charles St., 752-3810. There's a new kid on Federal Hill and he's making friends fast. Tabrizi's, a Mediterranean restaurant open since December in what used to be The Soup Kitchen, is becoming a neighborhood favorite. The menu at this small, attractive restaurant offers a multitude of appealing dishes from many cultures: Spanish, French, Italian, Greek, Turkish, Lebanese and Israeli. Many of the tastes are truly different, but fresh and tantalizing. The service is friendly and efficient, and the entryway by the kitchen -- and carryout -- gives Tabrizi's a friendly charm. $$moderate. (Last visited 1/91.)

LYNN WILLIAMS Tony Cheng's Szechuan Restaurant, 801 N. Charles St., 539-6666. This may be the beginning of the Year of the Sheep, but you won't find that information on Tony Cheng's place mats. This Chinese restaurant, situated in an opulent Mount Vernon town house, goes in for pink napery, marble fireplaces and ambitious cuisine. Shredded Peking pork was unappetizingly fatty, but thick, tender fried squid Taipei-style and a light, tart lemon chicken were as elegant as the decor. $$moderate. (Last visited 2/91.)

JANICE BAKER Robert Morris Inn, 314 Morris St., Oxford, (301) 226-5111. The Robert Morris Inn's best features are a handsome front porch view, and a winter hearth fire in an inner room. Gastronomically, we found competence without sophisticated food thinking. The passion of the house is plainness. We enjoyed a simple cut of rockfish, scallops dusted with paprika, and surf and turf with poached oysters over unsauced filet mignon. A crab cake platter's two kinds of crab cake were almost alike. Desserts were forgettable. $$$expensive. (Last visited 1/91.)
