The African diaspora and slavery are part of America’s history, like it or not.  But one of the few silver linings of this racial past is that Black people have influenced American cuisine as much as any other cultural group in America.  African-American soul food and Southern traditions are a key part of food culture, influencing every meal from breakfast, brunch, and lunch, to dinner and dessert.  We do our best to put a spotlight on some of the best black owned restaurants in the country and will continue to highlight other black owned food businesses in our coverage.

Another issue America has progressed from over the years is its views of Cannabis.  Recreational Marijuana is legal in 18 states, including Washington, DC and Massachusetts.  Cannabis has been big business for states where it is legalized, bringing billions of dollars in revenue per year across the country.  As states have begun experimenting with looser laws around the potent plant, food-based businesses have entered the picture, looking to infuse THC across all sorts of culinary approaches.  We covered 69 (heh heh) of our favorite cannabis-themed restaurants in our lists.

While the country has its issues around health – certainly the cannabis doesn’t help when it comes to weight loss – younger generations of Americans are adopting vegan and vegetarianism, along with more active lifestyles, to improve their health outlook.  But there aren’t always as many options as some of these diners would like.  That’s why we’ve covered some of the country’s best, healthy restaurant chains in our coverage – just because they’re ubiquitous, doesn’t mean they can’t make something good!

Delicious Black-owned Restaurants Across the United States

No matter where you visit in the US, you can find restaurants that feature local favorites and cuisines that tell the story of the region. Some of the best black-owned restaurants across the United States feed your soul while satisfying your appetite. The menus at these eateries offer dishes that highlight the cooking techniques of black people in the U.S. and around the world. Check out some of these black-owned restaurants for a culinary experience you won’t forget.

Sometimes America can seem like a big beautiful mess of a place, but that messiness can yield some of the most delicious culinary alchemy in the world.  Other times it leads to really bad yelp reviews.  We cover some of those unhinged Yelp reviews with love.  But at the end of the day, whether we’re binging on brunch, sizzling at the steakhouse, booking dinner at a black owned restaurant, taking back some THC infused lunch, or eating healthy, we’re so proud to be Americans.  And pretty full too, since there is so much great food to eat in this beautiful country.
