The Camden Club inside Oriole Park at Camden Yards was hoppin' last week, as Pam Shriver hosted the annual Kickoff Reception and Auction the night before her big Mercantile Tennis Challenge. Folks loaded up on food and drink and laid down a few bucks at the auction.

Among the celebs in attendance: Tom McMillen, Jim Beattie, Mike Flanagan, Geoff Grant, Elise Burgin, Scoville Jenkins and Phillip Simmonds.

Of course, we had the hostess herself - and new mom - Pam Shriver. Pam had left 5-month-old Georgie at home.

"But you have to have pictures!" exclaimed Louise Kelly, wife of Baltimore Tennis Patrons prez Clinton Kelly.

Whereupon Pam proudly whipped out a miniportfolio of pics. "He looks just like the Gerber baby," Louise pronounced.

Hip in Timonium

A hip new restaurant has landed in Timonium. Christopher Daniel is the creation of its two owners/chefs, Christopher Ellis and Daniel Chaustit, who have worked at some of B-more's top restaurants, among them Linwood's/Due, the Polo Grill and An Poitin Stil.

Chris says the two saw a need in the Timonium area for a place offering "modern American steakhouse cuisine." So when Courtney's moved out of its home in Padonia Park, Christopher Daniel moved in.

Chris and Daniel offer two options - the steak route, or New American cuisine. In the mood for red meat? You have your choice of tenderloin, New York strip, rib-eye, Kobe steak or porterhouse. Some of those cuts also come in three sizes, depending upon your appetite and wallet. Prices range from $14 to $30. Then, you can choose a sauce to go with it. The steaks, and additional selections rack of lamb ($24), tenderloin and crab cake ($28) or tenderloin and fried half lobster tail ($31), are all a la carte. Side dishes include baked potato ($3), lobster mashed potatoes ($6) or sauteed garlic spinach ($3).

Christopher Daniel, 410- 308-1800, is at 106 W. Padonia Road, in the Padonia Park shopping center. It is open for lunch 11 a.m.-3 p.m. seven days a week.
