February is Black History Month, which makes it a perfect time to celebrate the excellence of Black-owned businesses serving food and drink. The roster is always growing, to include the likes of Back Bay French bistro Cafe Sauvage; Lime, offering brunch and global fare in Chelsea; Watertown’s Nzuko, where the Caribbean and Mediterranean meet on the table; and Park 54 in Hyde Park, inspired by the service of the 54th Regiment, which was made up of Black volunteers during the Civil War. From old favorites to newcomers, here are more than 100 Boston-area establishments to visit for cocktails and steaks, jerk chicken, jollof rice, pizza, vegan cuisine, and so much more.
