You do not want to miss out on this year’s edition of Black Restaurant Week! Just a scroll down their mouthwatering Insta feed and you’ll be counting the days until the program rolls through your town. Kicking off in the Northwest Region from Feb 19 – 28, we’re seriously considering flying to Oregon to hit up Jelana’s Bake Shop in Hillsboro for a scrumptious Cinnamon Roll, and then making a b-line to Portland for that bodacious Bacon Biscuit at Sugar Street Bakery & Bistro!
But that’s only two of so many black-owned businesses with beautiful menus you’ll discover through Black Restaurant Week. So check out the 2021 Calendar below, and then mark your own calendar for when your town celebrates its Black Restaurant Week! As each region kicks off, you’ll find the list of participating restaurants on their website, check out the Northwest now!
“Founded in 2016 by Warren Luckett, Falayn Ferrell, and Derek Robinson, Black Restaurant Week® is dedicated to celebrating the flavors of African-American, African, and Caribbean cuisine nationwide. Through a series of events and promotional campaigns, Black Restaurant Week’s culinary initiatives help introduce culinary businesses and culinary professionals to the community.
Our innovative approach to a restaurant week includes highlighting other aspects of culinary businesses including catering services, food trucks, and culinary products. This helps stimulates the local economy and presents full access to the Black culinary industry which is a key ingredient to the American culture.“
