DINING OUT-THE CRITICS' REPORT

Hampton's, Harbor Court Hotel, 550 Light St., (410) 234-0550. When you want to impress people ostentatiously, take them to Sunday brunch at Hampton's. You'll pay a minimum of $20 per person for the sit-down meal; but for that you'll get extravagant food, wonderful service, lots of atmosphere and all the French sparkling wine and freshly squeezed orange juice you can drink. Homemade lobster tortellini in a shellfish broth with blueberry muffins and croissants, anyone? $$$$ -- very expensive. (Last visited 3/92.)

Pavilion at the Walters, Walters Art Gallery, 600 N. Charles St., (410) 727-2233. The Pavilion has been serving dinner Thursday and Friday nights since January. Though limited, the menu is imaginative and the food handsomely done. And, of course, this is one of the most intriguing dining spaces in the city. My personal favorite was the tuna -- charcoal-striped, moist and rare at the center like a good steak. It would be hard to beat for looks and flavor, but the tender, grilled veal steak on a bed of cabbage with wild mushrooms came close. $$$ -- expensive. (Last reviewed 3/92).
