Detroit Black Restaurant Week is back! Here are the details…


There is a special event for foodies starting this weekend. It’s Detroit Black Restaurant Week, an event that showcases black restaurants in our community. This time, more restaurants are participating than ever before.

Live In The D Host, Tati Amare spoke to event founder Kwaku Osei-Bonsu and Lloyd Talley, owner of East Eats.

The event will take place twice this year, once in spring and again in August. The spring event starts on April 9th ​​and lasts until April 18th. It is an opportunity for people to visit and sample the many black-owned restaurants in and around Detroit.

Talley stated that COVID-19 has hit the restaurant industry hard, especially black-owned restaurants. This is one way of supporting these companies. They took a break last year because of the pandemic and opened their new place, East Eats, which has a variety of pop-up chefs.


To make this restaurant week more COVID friendly, try getting a take away or take away order instead of dining in it, or opt for a socially distant outdoor dining experience.
