Sabatino's, 901 Fawn St., (410) 727-9414. Sabatino's is one of Little Italy's best-known restaurants, and still one of its best. Expansion some years ago made it a rambling place and not all tables are created equal, but there are small dining rooms and out-of-the-way tables for the quiet minded. The menu is traditional, with plenty of pastas, sauces, veal and seafood. Servings are large and the food flavorful; the house salad dressing, rich with Romano, is as good as ever and deserving of praise. $$ 1/2 -- moderately expensive. (Last visited 6/92.) Mount Washington Tavern, 5700 Newbury St., (410) 367-6903. With the opening of the Garden, or maybe I should say the enclosing of its garden, the Mount Washington Tavern has positioned itself as a place to go for the food -- food beyond nachos and $7 burgers. It's a great room (as long as you don't mind the noise), and it makes the place more of a restaurant and less of a tavern. The menu hasn't changed with the addition: There's still the same mix of trendy fare and full-scale dinners. Basic is better, we found, although the kitchen showed real promise with some of the more ambitious dishes. $$ -- moderate. (Last visited 7/92.)

ELIZABETH LARGE Old Waverly History Exchange and Tea Room, 414 E. 31st St., (410) 889-7112. Afternoon tea is served here with a large dose of funkiness. The tiny tearoom above the antique and gift shop is decorated with gorgeous Victorian wallpaper and oddly mismatched tables and chairs. Historic preservationist Donna Beth Joy Shapiro offers what she calls a "vegetarian tea." While that may not sound very appealing, the food was exceptionally good -- with such delicacies as currant scones, miniature tarts and spicy nut breads. $ -- inexpensive. (Last visited 7/92.)
