Out & Support: Dine out at black-owned restaurants

Supporting black owned businesses is more important than ever, and here, we've compiled a list of black-owned restaurants for readers to consider patronizing. 

With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, many restaurants have reduced hours, and some may only be offering take-out/delivery services, while others may have re-opened their dining rooms with safety precautions. Please visit the website or social media pages of your selected restaurant for additional information before visiting or ordering.

Those who know of additional restaurants that should be added to this list may send them to bc@hale.media.

Restaurants notated with (V) are vegan, and (VF) are vegan-friendly.
