August is National Black Business month, so it’s the perfect time for Black Restaurant Week in Atlanta.

Before we dive into the details, let’s talk about exactly what Black Restaurant Week (BRW) is. The week, created by Warren Luckett, Falayn Ferrell and Derek Robinson in 2016, was designed to celebrate “the flavors of African American, African and Caribbean cuisine nationwide. Through a series of events and promotional campaigns, Black Restaurant Week’s culinary initiatives help introduce culinary businesses and culinary professionals to the community.”
