Sascha's at Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St., (410) 332-0033. The concept is simple. The fixed price of $11 buys a seasonally appropriate soup, a choice of eight entrees, salad, good French bread and one of several simple desserts. The buffet opens an hour and a half before Center Stage performances, but you don't need a ticket to the play to eat there. Judging from the night we were there, the best bet might be one of the interesting cold entrees, like the Bangkok chicken salad with tabbouleh and marinated Oriental vegetables or the open-faced shrimp salad sandwich with two salads. The hot entrees simply weren't hot enough. $$ -- moderate. (Last reviewed 1/93.)

Poulet, 1340 Reisterstown Road, (410) 484-9400. Don't compare it with a restaurant; compare it with McDonald's. For those times that you want fast food but more of a meal than a hamburger and fries, Poulet is perfect. You'll get chicken that's crisp-skinned and moist because it's cooked on rotisseries imported from France. With it come two vegetables or salads; you choose them from the steam table cafeteria-style. My advice is to get in and out fast, though, because the dining room is noisy and crowded. $ -- inexpensive. (Last reviewed 7/92.)
