Now in its fourth year in Kansas City, Black Restaurant Week kicks off Sunday. It actually runs for two weeks, through Sept. 24.
The annual event celebrates Black-owned restaurants and the flavors of African American, African and Caribbean cuisine.
“We are energized by the talented chefs, restaurant owners and entrepreneurs who make Kansas City’s culinary scene so special,” said Steve Mills, president of Spire Missouri, which is sponsoring this year’s event.
Sixteen local restaurants are participating, and several will be offering special deals. To learn more about what’s being offered, Black Restaurant Week’s organizers suggest contacting the establishments directly.
