If you’re from New York, you may have heard of Restaurant Week. If you’re from Harlem, you may have heard of Harlem Week. But have you heard of Black-Owned Resturant Month ? It’s ok if you haven’t, although if you’re Black I’m currently giving you the side eye.
Today is the first official day of Black-owned Resturant Month(BORM). Genese Jamilah, the founder of I don’t do clubs, started BORM in 2015 after she having a hard time locating black-owned businesses. Unable to find this info, she did it her damn self and created dope lists like Black-Owned Restaurants in NYC, Atlanta, and DC. They went viral, inspiring her to start BORM.
Now, we have a whole month of April dedicated to supporting Black-owned restaurants. So for the next 26 days, you can go get some good grub with the $30 three-course prix-fixe menus on Mondays through Wednesdays. Below is the list of participating Harlem restaurants. You welcome!

Hope to see you take advantage of this opportunity to eat and support Black-owned businesses. Happy Grubbin’!
