Black Restaurant Week returns to the Orlando area this Friday, spotlighting some crucial and local Black-owned eateries in our region.

Running from Friday, Nov. 10, through Sunday, Nov. 19, Black Restaurant Week focuses in on Black restaurateurs, bartenders, chefs, caterers and food truck operators throughout the state.

The organizers of the event want this to be more than just another food-focused event, with an ambitious brief of "restimulating local economies within the Black community by promoting Black-owned culinary businesses and professionals who cannot afford costly marketing campaigns."

The restaurants participating in this statewide event this year include:

Brothers N Arms BBQ, food truck
CrystalBakes, 142 E. Jackson St.
