Frazier's Restaurant and Taproom,

Frazier's Restaurant and Taproom, 857 W. 33rd St., (410) 889-1143. This longtime Hampden "restaurant and taproom," tucked into the basement of a corner rowhouse, is a good place for a burger and a beer or for a nicely prepared homey sort of meal. With 10 tables, a bar, a couple of video games and a compact-disc juke box, Frazier's is for those who like it cozy. Claustrophobics should go elsewhere. The regular menu offers pizza, pasta, side dishes and sandwiches, as well as a dozen full-course meals and economical daily specials. The fried eggplant was outstanding -- crunchy on the outside but tender and mellow inside. Definitely worth the trip. $$ -- moderate (Last visited 3/92). Foster's Oyster Bar, Restaurant and Market, 606 S. Broadway, (410) 558-3600. Here you can have what may be the best fried oysters in town in a dining room loaded with Fells Point atmosphere. But the rest of our meal had its ups and downs. Still, Foster's has the potential of being a super seafood restaurant if it gets its act together. The fish ought to be fresh: They can get it at their very own seafood market next door. $$ -- moderate. (Last reviewed 4/92.)

ELIZABETH LARGE Light Street Pavilion Food Stalls, Harborplace, Inner Harbor. In honor of Opening Day, I took a look at the quick-hit places to eat at Harborplace, just a few minutes away from the new ballpark. Best bets: a hamburger and milkshake made the way they used to make them from Johnny Rockets, the Middle Eastern salad sampler from Pik-a-Pita, almost any Philippine dish from S. R. Florendo, a grape leaves salad from the Acropolis and for dessert -- no question -- a "custom blend" frozen yogurt, preferably blackberry-raspberry, from Yogen Fruz. $ -- inexpensive. (Last reviewed 4/92.)
