DINING OUT -- THE CRITIC'S REPORT

Sunshine Cafe

Sunshine Cafe, 11 W. Preston St., (410) 783-0230. The Sunshine Cafe -- in concept -- is the kind of restaurant Baltimore needs. A menu that relies on fresh ingredients. Dishes that have style. Prices that are reasonable. Several vegetarian sandwiches and entrees, but also chicken and fish. (Only red meat lovers will be unhappy: There isn't any.) And desserts to splurge on. But my impression of the food is that while it has its moments, the kitchen isn't paying enough attention to details. The couple of times we went, though, the Sunshine Cafe was young; it may well improve with age. $$ -- moderate. (Last reviewed 12/92.)

Natural Gourmet Classics

Natural Gourmet Classics, 334 N. Charles St., (410) 547-0550. This is the place to go for lunch when neither of you wants to spend much money, but you have a craving for a fat deli sandwich and a sexy dessert while your healthy friend insists on a salad and something like a vegetarian taco. The concept is good -- something for everyone. The problem is that the food can be quite uneven. You never can tell, for instance, what will be included on, or missing from, the salad bar. Sandwiches are almost always satisfactory. The corned beef was excellent, and soups are homemade and inventive (like butternut-white bean-ginger). $ -- inexpensive. (Last reviewed 12/92.)
