Black Restaurant Week Kicks Off

For the last two weeks you’ve been hearing about Chicago Restaurant Week and all the eateries participating. That list has always mostly been devoid of African-American owned restaurants, prompting the creation of Chicago Black Restaurant Week. It just kicked off and we talk to Lauran Smith, a designer of the week, along with Chef Cliff Rome of Rome's Joy Catering. He's the owner of the Parkway Ballroom, and H-Dogs and Peach’s restaurants in Bronzeville.
