Miami Eats and Treats: Support Local Black-Owned Restaurants


One of the best ways to give your support to marginalized individuals is through financial support. As an entrepreneur myself, I can’t think of a better way to do that than by directly supporting black-owned businesses. That’s why this month we are highlighting black-owned restaurants right here in Miami. 

Even though the inspiration for this post came from Black History Month, let’s pull up a chair (or call in an order) at these local favorites all year round.
