Houston get ready and prepare your taste buds as the culinary creation Black Restaurant Week has been added to the growing list of culinary events and dining experiences. Houston Black Restaurant Week is another treat as it aims to highlight the city’s diverse and rich culture in the African American community.

The inaugural Houston Black Restaurant Week kicks-off April 3-10 where Houstonians will get a chance to explore some of city’s hidden gems as African Americans are making contributions to Houston’s world-class cuisine. From savory meats, homemade sides, to delectable desserts Houston Black Restaurant Week has a variety for patrons to indulge in as more than fifteen black owned restaurants will offer prix-fixe menus for brunch, lunch, and dinner.

The menus range from $20 to $45 where a portion of proceeds will benefit a local non-profit organization in Change Happens which promotes youth advancement and empowerment. In addition to the weeklong dining out experience Black Restaurant Week curators will welcome foodies and local tastemakers to enjoy a host of social events that promote the local foodie scene including a catering showcase, a pop-up dinner with Houston native and Season 11 winner of FOX’s Hell Kitchen, Chef Ja’Nel Witt, a networking dinner, and bartending competition.

Patrons can explore a few of the dining out options that include Esther’s Cajun Café & Seafood, Etta’s Kitchen, Gatlins BBQ, and Davis St. at Herman Park. For a full list of participating restaurants and tickets visit for more information.
