L'Auberge, 505 S. Broadway, (410) 732-1151. Yes, L'Auberge is still open, although it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last March. And it's still one of Baltimore's most handsome dining rooms. The menu is more limited than it used to be, with beef and seafood predominant, and some of our meal was a bit slipshod. But L'Auberge's kitchen still turns out classically French cuisine; and there are many things to love here, from the chateaubriand for one to the creme brulee. $$$ -- expensive.

Zorba's, 4710 Eastern Ave., (410) 276-4485. Zorba's offers something a little different from other Greek places in the area: charcoal grilled specialties that are worth the trip to Greektown. Tender baby lamb chops arrived charred crusty outside, just pink inside. Quail (!) were worth the trouble it took to pick the succulent meat off the little bones. And if you crave the Greek standards like moussaka, spanakopita and stuffed grape leaves, Zorba's does them well, too. $ to $$ -- inexpensive to moderate. (Last reviewed 4/92.)
