Black Restaurant Week is happening now until Sunday, June 19, 2022 – don’t say we didn’t warn ya. We’ve pulled together a list of classics, our personal faves, and new (to us) spots we can’t wait to try this Black Restaurant Week. To see more on each restaurant’s special BRW menu, head to their websites and social media pages, then check them out or make that reservation before it’s too late.

Remember – this list consists of one person’s opinion at one specific point in time. It is not the end all, be all. There are TONS of awesome restaurants on the list – but sometimes you just need someone to narrow it down for ya, and these are spots we’re feeling right now.

For more info about all of the following restaurants including hours, addresses, phone numbers, etc. go to blackrestaurantweek716.com. Plus, find more Juneteenth Guides here!
