Framed art lines the walls at The Grey Goose, where whimsical paintings of geese and vintage light fixtures set the mood for food. But sight is just one of the senses treated to a feast. The aromas of freshly baked cookies and pastries waft through the dining area to supplant the equally pleasant scents of classic southern meals. Hearty offerings such as the pulled-pork barbecue sandwich meet lavash sandwiches in the form of the veggie burger served up on protein-packed, stone-ground flatbread. The husband-and-wife culinary team of Dana Clark Epstein and Phillip Epstein invite diners to take in a Dinnertainment show while supping at the establishment, where they can hum along to live music or become engrossed in a play while acting out the plotlines with their silverware—napkins make great curtains over a plate stage or a colleague’s face.

Cinema Cafe in Hampton combines old-fashioned American cuisine with first- and second-run films. The multisensory experience has garnered the movie house a total of 9 gold medals in the Virginia-Pilot's Best of Hampton Roads 2014 awards.
