If you’re looking for an opportunity to feast upon a plethora of “incredible edibles,” mark your calendars for what’s quickly becoming a tradition in the greater Washington area: the second annual DMV Black Restaurant Week, which returns Nov. 3-10.
Curated by co-founders, Dr. Erinn Tucker, Chef Furard “Tate” Tate and Andra “AJ” Johnson, the weeklong event promotes the knowledge and awareness of Black-owned hospitality businesses in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia (DMV) area.
Diners will experience either a three-course (“Prix-Fixe”) menu at a special price or receive a discount on catering orders and food purchases during the week. In addition, DMV Black Restaurant Week brings together Black restaurant owners, managers, chefs, caterers, brewers, thought leaders and financiers through various signature events throughout the week.
“DMV Black Restaurant is more than a week, it’s a lifestyle,” Tate said. “Our events and meetings throughout the year focus on closing the gap that exists in between Black-owned businesses, employees, and students and the major service-providers, leaders, and opportunities in the hospitality industry.”
