DINING OUT/THE CRITICS' REPORT

New No Da Ji, 2501 N. Charles St., 235-4846. New No Da Ji serves Japanese, Chinese and Korean fare in the former Love's Restaurant at 25th and Charles streets. The restaurant has a sushi bar at the front and two dining rooms, one up a few steps, giving the whole place an interesting split-level effect. With three cuisines to offer, the menu is predictably large. The won ton soup was delicious and the rest of the food satisfactory. But our impression of the food was overshadowed by the abrupt service and general coldness of the staff. $$moderate. (Last visited 9/91.)

Nickel City Grill, Pratt St. Pavilion, Harborplace, 752-0900. Back when 5 cents could buy a visiting sailor a sandwich, a beer, a taxi or a trolley ride, Baltimore was known as Nickel City. While nothing, alas, costs a nickel, the Nickel City Grill honors Baltimore's history in its industrial-deco design, while updating the classic dishes of the Chesapeake region. But what would our forefathers have made of pink peppercorns, sun-dried tomatoes, calamari and creme brulee? $$moderate. (Last visited 10/91.)

LYNN WILLIAMS Enrico's, 808 Westminster Pike, Reisterstown, 833-6301. In a relaxed atmosphere friendly to children, Enrico's serves inexpensive food that's good at the price. Pastas run $5.75 to $6.50, entrees $8.50 to $10.95; $3 more buys a choice of minestrone or melon, a house salad, bread and dessert. Minestrone vegetables were overcooked, vegetable lasagna tended to soupiness and a fish tasted old, but mussels were fresh, salad ingredients were crisp and clean and both pizza and veal marsala came with bold mushrooms. $$moderate.
