SEAFOOD, BURGERS, BARBECUE, SOUL FOOD, HOT CHICKEN, AND SO MUCH MORE: THE TEXAS RESTAURANT ASSOCIATION’S MUST-TASTE LIST REFLECTS THE DIVERSITY OF THE STATE’S BLACK-OWNED EATERIES

AUSTIN, TexasFeb. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) is making it easy to support some of the amazing Black-owned restaurants in the state during Black History Month with the release of a mouthwatering list of standout Black-owned eateries nestled throughout Texas.

The TRA Black History Month Must-Taste List underscores the strength and diversity of Texas’ Black-owned restaurants, whose menus range from burgers and barbecue to hot chicken, soul food, chef-led farm-to-table concepts, and so much more. A quick glance at the list also immediately affirms that Black-owned restaurants have been and will continue to play a critical role propelling Texas’ storied culinary richness and leadership within the global food and beverage industry.

Exploring every region will be a delectable enterprise: In Houston, stops are encouraged at Gatlin’s BBQ, owned by Greg Gatlin, who was seen most recently in the acclaimed Netflix series High on the Hog: How African-American Cuisine Transformed America. In Austin, Emmer & Rye is an inspired farm-to-table operation that is also pioneering green practices as a carbon neutral restaurant. Nestled in Duncanville and owned by Louis Rainey, The Pelican House interprets Cajun and Creole traditions through a deliciously Texan lens. Down the road in San Antonio, Tony G’s Soul Food has hooked a new generation on sublime Southern comfort food.

“Black History Month invites important conversations and intention on the topics of diversity and inclusion, but these restaurants are gems that should be on every food lover’s radar all year long––not just during February,” said Dr. Emily Williams Knight, Ed.D., President and CEO of the TRA. “And of course this list isn’t exhaustive; we will add to it as there are far too many incredible eateries to include in a single compilation. We hope these highlights encourage folks to try a new restaurant and to return to an old favorite. We’re so proud of the fact that here in the Texas restaurant industry, our diversity is our strength.”

The TRA will add to the list below throughout the month of February, creating a comprehensive list of Black-owned restaurants from across the state at https://txrestaurant.org/TXBlackOwnedRestaurants.
