2nd Annual Long Beach Black Restaurant Week starts Sunday, January 22

Long Beach residents and visitors alike are in for a treat as over two dozen of Black-owned local restaurants and food businesses will offer special menu items and special pricing when the 2nd annual Long Beach Black Restaurant Week returns January 22-29, 2023. 
 
Organized by local non-profit Long Beach Food & Beverage, executive director Terri Henry felt that in addition to encouraging local “foodies” to enjoy what the expanding Long Beach Black culinary community has to offer, events like these support the local economy and put “butts in seats” of our valued restaurants and food retailers and home-based businesses.

There are no tickets or passes to purchase. Food lovers are invited to dine-in, take-out or have featured items delivered from their favorite restaurants, or order from the websites of various pop-ups or home cottage businesses for pick-up.
