Inaugural Taste of Black Cleveland Restaurant Week Kicks Off on Monday



Cleveland will next Monday join other cities that feature and focus on black-owned restaurants during a designated week — much like independent restaurants are celebrated as a whole during restaurant week.

Participants include:

-Pearl's Kitchen
