Culture. Education. Good Food.


DMVBRW brings black restaurant owners, managers, chefs, caterers, thought leaders and financiers together into one room to discuss options for entrepreneurial ventures and continuing education. Because we are a global city, DMV Black Restaurant Week will be inclusive with allied partners. The week is just one of our signature events to promote black restaurants, chefs, bartenders, farmers, hospitality professionals, food bloggers and others in the food and beverage space throughout the year. With your help we desire to go even further to recognize existing restaurants and close the gap that exists in knowledge.
