The New York Pause is about to be lifted during the Black Lives Matter Movement and we have to do justice. Here is a list of Black-owned restaurants on Long Island. Some of you may have vacation homes along Long Island, some of you may live on Long Island, and some of you may even love to visit Long Island!
As a fellow Long Islander, I wanted to share some restaurants that I have been to, and have yet to dine! I'm just as excited as you are about restaurants reopening and I'm definitely heading to the ones I haven't tried out on this list. I can't wait to try out the Island food!
For those of you who aren't from Long Island, here's an App that finds local, black-owned restaurants near you. If you'd like to support local, Black businesses, or maybe just find a new favorite place to eat, download the EatOkra app now.

I have actually been here and love it! Their menu is very creative they have a savory crepe menu and a sweet crepe menu. There are too many options to choose from. It's a great place for dessert or a meal.
