Southfield (CW50) – Usually in a role of anonymity, reviewing restaurants for HOUR Detroit Magazine’s dining section, Lyndsay Green’s role as Dining Editor was shaken up during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since she wasn’t able to go into restaurants and review them during the temporary closures, she shifted her focus from reviewing to getting to know the culinarians behind-the-scenes of Detroit’s best restaurants.

While the pandemic has been hitting restaurants hard, Green found that it was black-owned restaurants, and black workers in the culinary industry that were impacted the most. In response, the August issue of HOUR Detroit Magazine featured 50+ of Detroit’s black Chefs, Servers, Restauranteurs, Entrepreneurs, and Farmers – recognizing how they’ve shaped the way we dine in the city of Detroit.
