As South Floridians continue to protest anti-black violence and police brutality, some locals are looking for ways to help support black-owned restaurants by purchasing meals.
With that in mind, several businesses, writers, and publications put together lists and guides spotlighting black-owned restaurants, food trucks, and food-related businesses throughout South Florida. And while many of these restaurants have existed for years, they don’t necessarily have access to as many resources as other independent restaurants including fundraising, and the ability to pay pricey public relations firms.
Eater Miami collected those efforts into this handy directory below. And please remember that people should dine at these restaurants throughout the year, not just during this period right now.
