FESTIVAL BACKGROUND

“African Restaurant Week emerges from the culture of taste and seeks to expose both Africans in the Diaspora and those curious to the intricacies of African cuisine; African Restaurant Week is a movement, creating cultural dialogues that develop more understanding and bridge the social polarities of a diverse global society”

African Restaurant Week (“ARW”) is a premier citywide food festival that celebrates the best in African cuisine and culture. Since launching our first African Restaurant Week in 2013 in New York with a handful of restaurants and increasing enthusiasm, we have grown into a 2-week thrilling celebration.

ARW  includes a mega-food festival event , cooking classes/parties, chef-hosted dinners events and various experiences that showcase the intersection of food , art, culture, entrepreneurship, and social impact. A world-class partnership line-up.

ARW is a celebration of African cuisine, restaurants, and chefs, it’s a promotion of diverse voices in the global culinary movement – both celebrity and emerging, it’s a commitment to community development and social impact, and we’re inviting all everyone to be part of it.
