There’s no better way to celebrate Houston history than through dining, so patronize history in the making by supporting Houston’s Black-Owned restaurants.
Start with breakfast at the Breakfast Klub, owned by Marcus Davis. With Katfish and Grits and Wings and Waffles, expect pan-American and Cajun comfort for breakfast and lunch.
Connect to Cajun cooking this Mardi Gras season at Frenchy’s Chicken for an order of chicken with a side of dirty rice. Started by Frenchy Creuzot in 1969, this exploration of robust cajun flavors is also Houston history.

Defying dining expectations, Indigo is more experience than eatery. Chef Johnny Rhodes guides guests through a five course meal as an exploration of African American history and oppression. With only 13 seats, place reservations early.
What a pleasure meeting @starchefs and talking about global food history and how deep of an impact food really has on all of us. This is the plate up for our 28 day dry aged waterfowl that is seared over live fire and finished w/ wet mesquite wood. This is served with our yellow BBQ sauce which takes about a year to make. This dish is titled Gold Links pt. 2 and will return to our menu in September as part of the Wild-Game carnivores menu.📷: @will_blunt #fwbnr #restaurantindigohtx #historyofsoulfood #theartofplating #crispyduckskin #texasbbq #africanamericanfoodways #twostrandtwistlocs
Gatlin’s Barbecue and Catering offers a down-home experience with ribs, brisket, and Cajun-style sausage. Gatlin’s is the craft barbecue spot of Houston. Plan your schedule around your meal, because the line can trail out the door for this finger-lickin’ feast.
Travel to the Caribbean without leaving your backyard. Reggae Hut, a Caribbean and Jamaican restaurant by Davis of Breakfast Klub fame, serves jerk seasoning on chicken, whole snapper, and even goat. Bright decor greets guests for a casual experience during lunch, and candles create a romantic atmosphere for dinner.
At Blue Nile Ethiopian dishes are brought out on soft injera. After enjoying some samosas and tibs, end the evening with some Ethiopian honey wine, or opt for a traditional coffee ceremony for everyone at the table.
For more libations, head over to either Onion Creek or Cedar Creek. While both offer coffee and sandwiches with a full bar, Cedar Creek has a larger beer selection and a cozy wood-burning fireplace. Onion Creek has more focus on food, with hot dogs and pizza on their menu.
