After a grand appearance in Houston last spring, Atlanta is excited to host Black Restaurant Week.
This event was created to support and raise awareness to the Black Culinary Industry which is so widely ignored, so to speak.
Starting July 31st through August 13th, anyone who is interested in partaking in the various food events are encouraged to purchase tickets in support of our Black Chefs as well as our Black owned Restaurants. Dining options will range from $15 per person to $25 per person for some casual dining and if you prefer fine dining options, the range will be $35 to $45 per person. There will be something to fit into everyone’s budget.
The participating restaurants are:
Cala Bar & Grill http://www.calabarandgrill.com
