85 Black-Owned Restaurants You Can Support In NYC Right Now, Organized By Neighborhood

One tangible way you can support the Black community in NYC is by spending money at Black-owned restaurants.

It’s an action you can take right in this moment, but also one you should incorporate into your daily, weekly and monthly spending habits. This list was compiled using spreadsheets that have been circulating across NYC social media (like this one and this one), as well as growing listings on local news website. This isn’t all-encompassing of the city yet, and we will be continuing to add to it.

The app EatOkra also helps you find Black-owned restaurants near you with an interactive map feature.
