Madison Black Restaurant Week returns

Madison Black Restaurant Week will be held Aug. 14–21, according to a Wisconsin State Journal report. The 7th annual event aims to build recognition for Black-owned food businesses.

People can vote for their favorites in three categories: restaurant, food cart, and caterer or dessert vendor. The event will also include a Food Tasting Jamboree from 2–5 p.m. on Aug. 21 in the FEED Kitchens parking lot at 1219 N. Sherman Ave. Attendees can purchase $5 samples from caterers, food carts, and specialty food services.
