Why do restaurants paint the ceilings black?

Just curious, I've looked around and I've noticed a lot of restaurants have black ceilings. Why? Personally I like it because I don't want to see their dirty ceilings.

    Asking the SAME question twice is like watching a taped replay and expecting that THIS time the score will change...

    It is a psychological "atmosphere" thing. People do NOT like an all white hospital looking environment, better to be dimly lit to be "cozier". You'll also notice a LOT of "earth tones" in the colors used. Orange and yellow will be prevalent because those are "warm" colors as opposed to blues and greens which are "cool" colors.
