Houston's second annual Black Restaurant Week will be April 17 through the 30, when the city will highlight black-owned businesses.
Among the notable places participating are Holley's Seafood Restaurant & Oyster Bar, Lucille's, Kitchen 713, Da Marco's, The Shack and several others.
"Last year, HOUBRW attracted nearly a thousand locals to its inaugural celebration within just one week. The overwhelming response and enthusiasm led HOUBRW organizers to extend this year's event to two weeks with added restaurants and new competitors along with the exciting addition of a food-truck park and block party to its lineup," spokesperson Kelly King said in a release. "Houston Black Restaurant Week seeks to increase the awareness, support and (patronizing) of black restaurants and chefs in the city."
A portion of the proceeds from each meal sold at participating restaurants will be donated to Blue Triangle Community Center, Commercial Kitchen Renovation "a commercial kitchen development to be utilized by budding caterers and the community at-large."
