The second annual Detroit Black Restaurant Week kicks off later this month and highlights metro Detroit's many wonderful black-owned restaurants. BlackMetroEats.com's Kwaku Osei-Bonsu and Lauren Bates organized the event, which runs from Aug. 20 through Aug. 26, and is designed "to begin a tradition in and around the city of Detroit by celebrating the many establishments owned and operated by black restaurateurs."

Restaurants for this year’s week fall into one of three categories — mobile, fast casual, or fine dining.



Each participating mobile establishment (or food truck) will offer a $10 main course with two sides and a drink. Schedules for each truck will be posted on its social media/websites. Participating casual dining restaurants will provide a $15 main course, two sides and a drink. Each fine dining restaurant will support an optional three-course lunch and a mandatory dinner menu priced at $25 and $35, respectively.

The lineup so far includes Ima, the Block, the Jamaican Pot, River Bistro, COOP, Colors, Le Crepe, SavannahBlue, the Griot, DUO, Nack's Good Eats, and Yum Village.

Check back for line up updates.
