If you've ever heard of Restaurant Week, you know that it's an awesome way for food lovers to explore eateries across the globe. But wouldn't it be dope to expand the palates of foodies everywhere while highlighting black-owned eateries in the process? I DON'T DO CLUBS, which caters to black professionals that are seeking social outings outside of nightclubs, began highlighting black-owned businesses cross-country and created the first ever Black-Owned Restaurant Month NYC last year. This year, IDDC is celebrating Black-Owned Restaurant Month nationwide

From April 4 - 27, select black-owned eateries are treating guests to three-course fixed-price ($30) dinners on certain days of the week. If you love food, trying new things, supporting black businesses and getting an awesome deal, check out the participating restaurants below and book your reservations ASAP
