Emily Lampa is with Deanna Johnson from The Flaming Fish Food Truck. She is here today to help us mark one of the largest celebrations of black-owned businesses and restaurants here in the Queen City. When asked how big deal it is to be a part of Black Restaurant Week, Deanne says, “It is a huge deal being a part of Black Restaurant Week. We are a minority-owned food truck and restaurant. We have a brick-and-mortar location a couple of blocks from here and we serve all the favorites from the truck and then some.”

Black Restaurant Week is returning for a fifth year, all leading up to Buffalo’s Juneteenth celebration this weekend. The Flaming Fish Food Truck will also be participating in Juneteenth this weekend. Deanna, says it is a huge festival for us. We’ve been doing Juneteenth since even before we had the food truck and we’ve had the food truck for seven years.
