Black chefs and entrepreneurs are revitalizing the food scene in Houston, TX. We featured Houston's own Black Chef Table as the main story of Greenwood Ave. Magazine No. 2. To celebrate the launch of the newest edition, our team visited Houston to hand-deliver copies of the magazine to the talented chefs that make up Black Chef Table. While we were there, we visited some Black-owned businesses & met incredible people who carry the spirit of Greenwood.
Here were some of our favorite spots:
- The Breakfast Klub (@katfishandgrits): Founded by Marcus Davis, The Breakfast Klub has become a top tourist attraction in Houston, as well as a local favorite breakfast spot. Don’t be deterred by the line wrapping around the building; the Wings & Waffle are worth the wait!
- Kindred Stories (@kindredstorieshtx): Kindred Stories, founded by Terri Hamm, is a bookstore in Houston that amplifies Black authors and artisans while uplifting the community. Their outdoor area is the perfect space to escape with your favorite read.
- Crumbville (@edubalicioustreats): Ella Russell opened Crumbville as a bakery that serves as a place where community can meet up and connect over baked goods and sweet treats. Be warned - once you enter, it will be hard not to grab every cookie flavor in sight.
- The Plant Project (@theplantproject_): The Plant Project is more than a plant shop. It was created by Bree Clarke to celebrate diverse community, culture & plants. We wish we were in Houston more often, because their shop hosts incredible community events that we would attend in a heartbeat.
