Friday, November 3 – Friday, November 17

Participating restaurants: https://latinrestaurantweeks.com/atlanta-menus/

Latin Restaurant Weeks (LRW) celebrates its second year in Atlanta to drive awareness to local Latin chefs,
restaurant owners, caterers, coffee shops, bakeries and culinary pop-up events while spotlighting the diversity of
Latine flavors offered throughout the city. In partnership with Feed the Soul Foundation, Elavon, Stella Artois and
U.S. Bank, culinary businesses will feature special dishes and menus showcasing a variety of Latin
American/Hispanic businesses.   More than 40 participants will join the campaign with a primary purpose to amplify
visibility to one of the largest ethnic groups, which is responsible for Atlanta’s ever-growing economic growth.
The “Buen Provecho” campaign – the equivalent of bon appétit – encourages residents and tourists to expand their
palate during the two-week event beginning on Friday, November 3 through Friday, November 17 by dining at one
of the campaign’s participating venues. LRW continues to bring prominence to the Hispanic/Latin regions represented
in the greater Atlanta area and serves as a reminder to support local Latine entrepreneurs during National Hispanic
Heritage Month. Participants will highlight menu selections that represent their fare’s authenticity and culture. While
each style of cooking implements unique methods with region-specific produce and spices, each group presents bold
flavors and evokes feelings of nostalgia through their cuisine. Latin Restaurant Weeks will aid in restimulating culinary
businesses as they face a new set of challenges post pandemic including inflation, rising food cost and labor
retention concerns.
According to the National Restaurant Association, one-fifth of restaurant managers and supervisors are Hispanic yet
the top-level executives and CEOs is significantly lower. Dissecting the data proves the amount of growth within the
Latinx community is due to the ever-growing culinary scene in the metropolitan area. 
Latin Restaurant Weeks encourages businesses to create an experience outside of their traditional menus by
developing prix fixe specials and/or meal-beverage pairings to pique the public’s interest. This method may assist
business owners and chefs with establishing new dining opportunities in an overall effort to expand their customer
base. This year’s participants include authentic Mexican cuisine and flavors at El Taco Velez, savory Spanish-
inspired staples at Buena Vida Tapas & Sol, creative twists on Venezuelan fare at Arepa Grill and if tradition is a
preference – there’s the robust empanada offerings at Belen de la Cruz.  
Co-founded by Karinn Chavarria, the campaign originated in Houston in 2019 and was designed to highlight the
contributions of Latinos in the culinary industry as an integral part of the local community.  Since 2019, LRW has
celebrated its weeks in Atlanta, Chicago and Miami and extended its reach to New York in 2023.
“Our community has influenced and enriched the culinary industry for more than two centuries and will help forge its
future,” explains Chavarria.
Since its first year in 2019, a majority of LRW participating restaurants witnessed up to a 20% increase in diners as
well as a boost in social media engagement during and after each market’s campaign.
