A wunderland of Teutonic tradition, Bavarian Garden employs seasonal ingredients and authentic recipes when cooking its traditional German comfort fare. While waiting on Gasthaus-style entrees, such as Jaegerschnitzel in a creamy mushroom sauce ($15.95) or the rolled beef roulade ($16.95), diners can spin knife-and-fork couples in time with waltz music filling the dining room. Dirndl-clad fräuleins weave through the Garden's pink cloth-draped tables, with frothy steins of imported Spaten and Paulaner bier hefted in their fists. In an effort to satisfy their separate Bavarian stomach, patrons can fill it with the german sausage sampler, which lays together single links of brat, knock, and house Wurst, parlayed with sauerkraut and potato salad ($14.95). Bavarian Garden shelters an extensive international wine selection, and an array of bottled beers from around the world accompanies its draft options.
Peer up at the menu and jump-start your morning with a breakfast pita, such as the morning glory, comprised of avocado, eggs, tomatoes, home fries, grilled green peppers, onions, and your choice of cheese and zesty sauces.

In an effort to find a healthy alternative to fast food without sacrificing speediness, the creators of Pita Pit began assembling their signature sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks. At each location, thin, Lebanese–style pitas encircle lean, grilled meats and fresh veggies. Sandwich selections span the spectrum from gyro meat and falafel to turkey and prime rib. The staff empowers customers to make healthy choices by displaying nutrition information for each bread, meat, and post-meal toothpick and corralling a selection of healthy sandwiches.
The Gazebo’s masters of appetite, the Kokolis family, serve up hearty, heartfelt dishes to longtime locals, passersby, and members of the Tribe. Tongues wagging for prime rise-and-shine kibble will sniff out The Gazebo’s Famous Plantation breakfast, an alpha-stamped sampler of two eggs, two buttermilk pancakes, ham, bacon, sausage, home fries, and grits ($9.95). Fans of syrup slip ‘n' slides might dive head first into the buckwheat pancakes ($6.50), while those who prefer to contain their maple glaze in strategically selected squares on a grid can opt for a plain belgian waffle ($6.50). On the menu’s feather-framed page, a clutch of cluck classics clamor for attention, from three-egg omelettes ($5.75–$6.95) to egg and meat combos ($6.75–$12.50), all accompanied by a biscuit and your choice of grits or home fries.
Voted Best Indian Cuisine of Hampton Roads by the readers of The Virginian Pilot, Nawab Indian Cuisine cajoles palates into contentedness with a menu sprawling with a variety of seafood, vegetable-based plates, and chicken. Guests can begin a subcontinent saunter with an appetizer of saffron lime mussels flavorfully swimming in a river of aromatic coconut broth ($8). A glass of 2006 French pinot noir ($8) augments the tomato-and-cream-sauce-slathered chicken tikka masala ($14.50), and an Argentinean chardonnay ($7) reliably sidekicks Goan shrimp curry ($17). Each of Nawab’s four locations envelops guests in a warm ambience festooned by elegant flourishes of Indian art or vibrant Technicolor paintwork. The high ceilings encapsulate visitors in an abundance of space and allow plenty of room for tall humans or dozens of babies stacked on top of each other.
