NOVEMBER 7-14, 2021

spotlighting black culinary and bar talent 

Feeding DC's Finest

Friday, February 26th
Feeding those who feed us...
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.

WHY DMV Black Restaurant Week?


 African-Americans/Blacks make up restaurant owners and the same share of restaurant managers.

  • Just need a break from work and studying? Grab tea, coffee or a flavored drink - visit DMVbrw-approved coffee/tea/beverage shops
