It was the summer of 2012 when I visited my old Colorado restaurant, a family restaurant with an African American family that had been serving its loyal customer base for generations.
At the time, the owners and staff were still at the helm of the business, with the owners selling the restaurant to a new owner in 2017.
Since then, I’ve become obsessed with trying to learn more about the history of the restaurant, and I’ve found that I’ve also come across some fascinating facts about the business.
“I think it’s because they had a very strong community, they were part of the community,” said co-owner and chef Scott Brown.
“And I think that’s what people loved about it.”

The restaurant opened in 2013, when Brown, a black American, and his wife, Michelle, moved into the Boulder neighborhood.

The Black and Whiteness of the neighborhood is the story behind this restaurant.
It was known for its African-American family members, as well as the fact that it served a diverse, family-friendly cuisine.
Brown’s family, however, was born in Colorado.
His grandfather was a pioneer in the African American community, and Brown’s mother was a Black woman who helped the family grow up in the area.
After college, Brown’s family moved to New Orleans and worked at a shoe store.
It wasn’t until he moved back to Colorado to be a father to his children that he realized his heritage and culture.
A history lesson with his familyAfter moving back to the Denver metro area, Brown, who is white, decided that he wanted to pursue his passion for culinary arts, which eventually led to his hiring as co-managing partner at Black and Brown.
Brown and his partner, coowner and owner Danyell, have made a mark on the neighborhood and surrounding area.
They are known for their African-inspired cuisine, and they have earned the respect of both Black and white customers.
The owner, Scott Brown, says that his family is African American, too, but Brown said that they also have white customers and are happy to serve them.
The restaurant also has its own restaurant, the African-Asian restaurant, which has become a staple in the neighborhood.
The restaurants owners are also passionate about their community and have worked hard to serve a diverse customer base.
“Our community is not just African-Americans, it’s African-Hispanic, Hispanic-American, and we’re all Americans, and that’s why we’re successful,” said Brown.
He also said that the Black-white restaurant, like his family, is very diverse and they serve African- and Asian-American customers.

The African- Asian restaurant is also located at the same location.
While Brown and his family continue to serve their loyal customers, Brown said the family has opened two other African-owned restaurants in the metro area in 2018.
