Black-Owned Restaurants in North Carolina

Restaurants are what we know and love. We’ve been researching Black-owned restaurants across NC to put on a must-visit list, and decided to aggregate the information so others could do the same. We’ll be posting the full list in our stories today, and saving it for our highlighted stories. Let us know if a restaurant is missing, and we’ll add it to the list. Comment below with your favorites! We will also have the full list with links on our blog at katiebuttonrestaurants.com. Beyond this, we’ve dedicated time over the past week to pause operations at Katie Button Restaurants to listen and reflect. Here’s what we know: Systematic racism exists; White privilege exists; Police brutality must end. Black lives matter. We can and will do more.
