Boston Black Restaurant Month Kicks Off!

Here’s how you can participate!

The Boston Black Hospitality Coalition, teaming up with Nia Grace, owner of Darryl’s Corner Bar & Kitchen in the South End, launched a new initiative to support Black owned restaurants in Boston. During August, the coalition aims to promote Black-owned restaurants through social media, running profiles on these businesses and launching giveaways while encouraging diners to visit or order from as many Black-owned restaurants as possible. 

The Boston Black Hospitality Coalition was created with the goal of preserving Black-owned restaurants and bars in the Boston area, which have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Details regarding Boston Black Restaurant Month can be found at bostonblackrestaurants.com, which features a list of Black-owned restaurants to frequent throughout August and beyond. 

In addition, the coalition also aims to launch four beer gardens across the city, including one hosted by Darryl’s in the South End at the Stanhope Garage, and one hosted by Roxbury’s District 7 Tavern at the corner of Quincy Street and Warren Street. Plans for two additional gardens at the Lawn on D and Boston Convention and Exhibition Center are being discussed.
