It seems like a small thing, but it’s an extremely meaningful one to the chefs and restaurateurs involved: showing support for Black-owned restaurants in the Seattle area by ordering takeout and/or delivery now.

Intentionalist is an excellent online resource for doing so, with a searchable index of Black-owned restaurants, cafes and other businesses around here and in other cities across the country. (The site is also searchable for small businesses owned by more people of color, women, veterans, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities as well — our colleague Naomi Ishisaka’s recent column about how Intentionalist can help align choices with values is very much worth a read.)

For more on some beloved local favorites that are offering takeout and/or delivery now, here are some of our recent stories and reviews. Again, if you’re looking for more places to support, go to
