The Woman's Industrial Exchange, 333 N. Charles...


The Woman's Industrial Exchange, 333 N. Charles St., 685-4388. The Tea Room at The Woman's Industrial Exchange offers a lot of flavor -- in both the food and the surroundings. Open weekdays for breakfast and lunch, the Tea Room serves plain good food at reasonable prices and boasts the best chicken salad in town. The decor goes back a few decades with the classic black-and-white tile floor as the one standout. The service is efficient and friendly. Don't plan to linger here, but do plan to stay long enough for a piece of homemade pie. $inexpensive. (Last visited 1/91.)

LYNN WILLIAMS Piccolo Italiana Ristorante, Clock Tower Place, 1410 Forest Drive, Annapolis, (301) 280-0400. The signature color for Italian restaurants used to be red, as in red wine, red sauce and red-checked tablecloths. Now the color of choice, at least for eateries with aspirations, is pink. Piccolo, one of the newer "power dining" spots in Annapolis, is definitely "in the pink" where both the decor and the cuisine are concerned. There are no cacciatores or spaghettis here, but a wealth of refined Northern Italian cuisine, whose prices are surprisingly competitive with the less dressed-up offerings of Little Italy. $$moderate.

JANICE BAKER Inn at Perry Cabin, 308 Watkins Lane, St. Michael's, (301) 745-2200. While there is no perfect meal, we ate as close to a perfect dinner at the Inn as mortals' meals come. At $150 for two before tax, it was expensive. It was also absolutely first rate. The menu offered two levels of prix fixe meals, together with three alternate first courses, and three alternate entrees. Favorite dishes? Maybe seared rare foie gras with glazed apples and port wine, or oyster tartare, or apricot crepes with nutmeg cream, or... very expensive. (Last visited 12/90.)
