Interested in supporting Black-owned restaurants? You’re in the right place.

Supporting Black-owned is important every day and especially vital during the COVID-19 pandemic. Depending on where you’re located, finding Black-owned restaurants near you may seem like a challenge, but there’s an array of resources out there to point you in the right direction.

If you’re in the DC area, I’ve also pulled together my personal DC area favorites, broken down by category with a map for ease of use. 

Headed to or interested in Charlotte, North Carolina? Don’t miss out on Leah & Louise, one of the best Black-owned restaurants I’ve ever been to that’s leading the way as far as centering Black histories and experiences in food.
