A Foodie’s Guide to The Best Black Owned Restaurants in NYC


As a (black) foodie, I believe it is important to support black businesses. However, just so you know, I’m not one of those people that will support black businesses “just because”. Every restaurant on this list, is here not only because they are black owned, but also because the restaurant offered something worth blogging about.

My Journey through the Best Black Owned Restaurants in NYC is ongoing and started when I moved to NYC from Chicago almost 7 years ago. This post will be updated as I visit more places. For now, eat up and enjoy!

Please note: all photos were taken by me unless noted otherwise.

  1. I’m eating much healthier these days.
    Becoming aware of bad tasting food is one thing.
    Finding that ultimate dining healthy, yet nutrition al meal is another. I have yet to accomplish finding a black owned food estsblishment like
    that. Maybe, you can point me in the proper
    direction. Like brother James Brown said, say it
    loud. Im black and im proud.
