There’s no better way to spice up your week than to have an amazing curated meal from a Black-owned restaurant through ByBlacks Restaurant Week (BRW). ByBlacks has made it easier than ever to find a Black-owned restaurant in your area and enjoy an amazing meal at home through take out or delivery.

“With all the challenges Black Canadian restaurateurs are experiencing during the pandemic, being able to only offer takeout and delivery options, the situation presented an incredible opportunity to increase traffic to (Black-owned) restaurants across Canada,” notes Roger Dundas, publisher and Co-Founder of ByBlacks.com.

This week, the ByBlacks team has carefully curated food experiences at Black restaurants in Ottawa, Montreal and across the GTA including Whitby, Mississauga, Brampton, and Toronto.

Nicky, Renée, and Donna are the sisters behind SugarKane Restaurant, one of Toronto’s best.

“We are super excited to participate in ByBlacks restaurant week,” says Nicky, Co-owner of SugarKane Restaurant in Toronto. “We are three Black women running a restaurant, so sometimes there are a few more hurdles to get over than most that can make starting and/or running a business a bit more difficult. So we’re thankful to see Black restaurants being highlighted and enjoyed by all cultures!”

Participating restaurants will be offering curbside and/or delivery via apps such as Skip The Dishes and DoorDash, that are more popular with Black-owned restaurants. It’s expected that customers will use this week to sample cuisine from their respective hometowns.

BRW is being supported by Black Canadian membership organizations; Afro Canadian Business NetworkBlack Business and Professional Association, and the Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce.  Also supporting BRW are BLACK FOODIE, Restaurants Canada, Canada Takeout, and new meal kit delivery service Carib Dish
