The Final Weekend of Black Restaurant Week
The DMV’s Black restaurant week has returned for the third time, and we couldn’t be more excited to highlight some amazing small business establishments! Black restaurant week was founded by, Serenata beverage director Andra “AJ” Johnson, chef Furard Tate, and GW hospitality professor Dr. Erinn Tucker. They sought a way to give Black DC restaurants’ exposure while giving local DC residents an easy pathway to locate popular DC food staples.
This simple idea has led to two years of deliciousness in The District! And our taste buds are looking forward to a mouth-watering third!
Like with any other traditional food week or weekend, the best part about Black Restaurant Week is knowing that you can go to a hand-selected list of businesses to enjoy a great line-up of drink and food specials. These fantastic deals mean that no matter which restaurant you choose, you know that each one is primed and ready to leave your stomach full without you having to break the bank. Does it get any better than that!?
Additionally, with November being a huge month for prepping and cooking, we know that any opportunity you have someone else do that cooking is a welcomed one! — Black Restaurant Week is the perfect chance to get out on the town to enjoy some incredible food and incredible savings right before things heat up in your kitchen for the Holiday.
This weekend is the last opportunity to take advantage of these amazing Black-owned restaurant offers during this year’s Black-owned restaurant week.
Below is a list of some of favorite participating Black-owned restaurants.
