Black Restaurant Week is back with a new grant program and a bigger reach

Warren Luckett, Falayn Ferrell and Derek Robinson want you to have a favorite Black-owned restaurant— just like you have a favorite spot for tacos or burgers or pasta. To help, they founded Black Restaurant Week, a national event spotlighting Black-owned restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and other culinary establishments where participants cook up special dishes, combos and prix-fixe menus for one week of the year. The third Los Angeles iteration is scheduled for Aug. 6-15 and will feature new restaurants and food trucks, plus an expanded reach into more of Southern California — and a new grant program to help local business.

Jon & Vinny's is a newfound favorite. Come here for Breakfast or Lunch/Dinner and you will not be disappointed. If you do decide to come by for dinner, start with their garlic bread. It's absolutely delicious and I always ask for extra olive oil to dip it into as well as balsamic.
