Now that last night’s kick-off party is over, featuring free tastings and live music at the Baltimore Visitor Center, it’s time to begin the Black Restaurant Challenge itself.
Organized by chef Casey Jenkins, the month-long event hopes to raise the profile of some of the city’s black-owned restaurants. The roster includes (but is not limited to): Sully’s Seafood & BBQ, The Land of Kush, Terra Cafe, Peace & A Cup of Joe, The Urban Oyster, Connie’s Chicken & Waffles, The Big Bean Theory, Nancy by SNAC, Shareef’s House of Wraps, Khepera’s Kitchen and Chef Mac’s Louisiana Cuisine.
They’re only challenging Baltimoreans to visit two of these (or any other) black-owned restaurants during the month of February, but there’s plenty of time left in the month and a whole lot of delicious food to eat, so plan accordingly.
To spread the word, feel free to post about your experience on Facebook and Instagram.
Now through Feb. 25, various locations; blackrestaurantchallenge.com.
