The Ghent neighborhood of Norfolk, Virginia is a trendy and popular destination for sidewalk dining and people watching. Colley Avenue is home to numerous restaurants, shops and the NARO Expanded Cinema, the beloved art repertory theater. Some of the old building facades were seemingly  last renovated in the 1950’s. There is, of course, a Starbucks, and more recently, Chipotle Grill, but most of the businesses are still locally owned. A watering hole for the nearby university and medical school students, the area is a throwback to 1950’s Norfolk with a kitschy vibe.
