New York City is known to many as a melting pot especially when it comes to food. NYC is the one place that you can experience so many different types of food and culture without having to use your passport! In NY we have China Town, Little Italy and now you can get a snapshot of Africa during this month Long celebration. African restaurant week kicked off October 1 and will run until the 22nd. I was fortunate to attend some of the programs and know that next year I plan to attend more. One of the main events during African Restaurant Week was the Food Festival that took place at Industry city in Brooklyn. From the venue to the food, to the music it was a fantastic experience. Upon walking in your greeted by a beautiful outdoor space with people dressed up in their favorite African garments.
