DINING OUT - THE CRITIC'S REPORT

May 01, 1993|By ELIZABETH LARGE | ELIZABETH LARGE,Restaurant Critic

Charles Tandoor, Charles Plaza, 222 N. Charles St., (410) 576-5095. The manager of Tandoor Harborplace, which closed, and several employees have opened a new Indian restaurant a few blocks north. It doesn't have the great harbor view, but the food is better than I remember being served at the old location, the dining room is pretty and the service superb. It offers the standard dishes other Indian restaurants around here do, but it also offers some I've never had, such as chat-e-bahar, an intriguing Indian salad, or grilled chicken with cream cheese and green chilies. At lunchtime, try an all-you-can-eat buffet for $6.95. $$ -- moderate. (Last reviewed 3/93.)

Museum Cafe, Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Drive, (410) 235-3930. I've always liked the contemporary dining room, with the floor-to-ceiling view of the museum's sculpture garden. And I've liked the kind of food the Museum Cafe has served over the years -- innovative and casual, with a healthy twist to many of the dishes. Christopher Cherry, the new chef, hasn't changed the style of the food at the cafe. What he's done is make it work. I can recommend the grilled rare tuna, an excellent Oriental chicken salad, or a Parmesan cheese quiche with grilled red peppers and mushrooms. $$ -- moderate. (Last reviewed 4/93.)
