Black Metro Eats

The first-ever Metro Detroit Black Restaurant Week will show off some of area’s finest eateries featuring cuisines spanning from Caribbean, French, West African and more. Black Restaurant Week will be held August 21 to August 27 to highlight black-owned Detroit establishments as well as locations in Royal Oak, Southfield, Farmington and Redford.

Co-founder of BlackMetroEats.com Lauren Bates says, “This week is giving people, that live, work and play within these communities a chance to try something different and new that they may have never thought of trying before, it is about enjoying really great food. This is just the beginning."

The first participating restaurant announced is Le Crepe, owned by restaurateur Dennis Williams. Metro Detroit Black Restaurant Week is currently looking for additional eateries to participate. Fine dining establishments will offer a three-course lunch and/or dinner menu priced at $25 and $35, and casual dining spots will provide a $15 one-course option to their patrons.

Interested restaurants can find more information online.
