IMPORTANT CONVERSATION GUIDELINES:

  • share air time, try not to dominate the conversation.
  • defer to the facilitator. we reserve the right to kick your dissenting ass out the door. 
  • we are a space that centers the perspectives and experiences of black folks. everyone is very welcome and encouraged to participate, however it is important to recognize the intention of our restaurant space. if you're white (and or male), it will probably be uncomfortable but it's all right, you gon make it   :)

WARNING

our goal is to create a space for hard truths. we do not promise anyone leaves unscathed because the conversations will be fraught and difficult.
however, while we promote honest conversations we do not tolerate crazy talk: we are not a space to relitigate facts such as white supremacy, patriarchy, exploitative capitalism et al. we do not pander to white and male fragility or guilt. we don't even play that and we'll legit show you the door if your intention is to disrupt. we understand that we are all problematic in some way but that doesn't mean we condone you being a problem.
this is an imperfect, evolving space focused on the messy work of confronting systems of oppression in which we are ALL complicit please be patient with us.

READINGS

the readings are integral to the dining experience. please read them and don't be that person.

GRATITUDE

we're are really really appreciative to you for reserving a place at our restaurant.
and if these notes are strict, it's only because they are necessary.
can't wait to feed you. can't wait to share with you.
