Black-Owned Foodie Travels: Southern Heritage in Seattle, WA

Black-Owned Foodie Travels: Southern Heritage in Seattle, WA

Seattle, Washington known as the Emerald city, has more than an abundance of green scenery to offer. As one the largest cities in Washington, Seattle is loaded with flavorsome restaurants and is considered “Food Heaven ” for some locals and travelers. With over 18 neighborhoods in the Seattle area, there is one specific neighborhood that contains the finest black owned restaurants in town. The neighborhood with the exquisite taste and African American flair is the Ravenna neighborhood. In Ravenna there are three restaurants, owned by Chef Edourado Jordan that are sure to fulfill one’s hunger while giving you the best experience in dining and providing an impressive cultural twist on food.


Since opening in 2015 by Chef Eduardo Jordan, Salare has continued to be a Ravenna neighborhood staple. Salare is known for their dishes that features cultures and cuisines from Africa, the Caribbean Islands, and Europe. From red curry goat stew to Haitian meatball, white rice, and black beans or Haitian hot wings to cocktails and wine, Salare now has given the option to order online and allows for easy pick up or delivery for a true foodie to finish their dinner in the comfort of their own home. Salare is such a success because of their ability to feature food influenced by African diaspora while integrating the history of each dish into a meal and demonstrating the love and knowledge of the culture through just one bite.


Another eatery owned by Mr. Jordan, June Baby, has a slightly different flare than Salare but has also seen success in the Ravenna area. While JuneBaby is extremely passionate about providing insight on Southern jargon , they also provide dishes that will encourage any food lover to learn more about the history of the food to find out why it tastes so scrumptious.  JuneBaby allows for cookers and eaters to partake in their delicious meals, but more so, June Baby provides their eaters and foodies from afar the ability to order their special spice blends, jam, cornbread mix to enjoy in the luxury of their own home. 

Lucinda Grain Bar

A boutique bar that serves beans and booze is definitely a drop-in spot for all foodies. The restaurant is mostly known for their curated assortment of distilled beverages, craft cocktails and foods that features rare grains, however is also esthetically pleasing and has an inviting aura. As a boutique bar that seats about 25 people, Lucinda Grain Bar is a place for foodies to relax, meet with friends, and explore the world through their diverse drinks and healthy dishes.

The three restaurants owned by chef Chef Edourado Jordan are unique in their own way, yet each of them holds true to serving dishes and drinks inspired by cultural traditions and cuisine. At each restaurant one can anticipate achieving a different experience but will be provided with great customer experience and satisfaction.  The Ravenna community is lucky to have three fulfilling restaurants and if you are interested in finding out what your taste buds are missing, a trip to Seattle or order of spices and food mixes would definitely solve that problem.
