With Detroit joining the rest of the nation in taking to the streets to protest police brutality and support the Black Lives Matter movement, there's been a lot of focus on supporting African American-owned businesses.
The foodie blog Fed & Bougie posted a great list last year to get you started, although some of these businesses are currently closed due to COVID-19. While bar and dining rooms can open Monday, per Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, they can allow 50% capacity, and not all restaurants will open up right away.
Here are more black-owned restaurants in the city that are open and serving carryout — and delivery in some cases, either through the restaurant or third-party delivery apps — that you can support this weekend and beyond. I also encourage you to check out the black-owned delivery app Black and Mobile, which started serving the Detroit area this year.
Check with each restaurant directly for hours and ordering instructions.
