Boston Black Restaurant Challenge: Be a part of it!

The Boston Black Restaurant Challenge is back for a third year! The goal is to encourage diners to try something new or visit one of your old favorites. The challenge is to try four Black-owned restaurants in February with the hopes you’ll continue the trend throughout the year.

There are nearly 70 restaurants all over Boston opening their doors and participating.  It’s a great way to shake up your dining out routine and help support local businesses!
