As you may know, Scott Joseph’s Orlando Restaurant Guide is featuring Black-owned restaurants during February in observation of Black History Month. So far, we’ve visited Chicken Fire, Caribbean Sunshine Bakery and Brick & Spoon.
This is not an exhaustive list but mainly those I've reviewed. If you know of others you'd like to see reviewed, drop me a note or leave a comment.
More will be featured in the coming weeks, but I wanted to revisit some that I’ve reviewed in the past for your patronage consideration. All are worthy. Click on the name of the restaurant to read my past review.
