Celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with AAPI-Owned Restaurants

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and we’re celebrating by highlighting AAPI-owned restaurants!

All month long, we’ll be sharing local faves like these here and on Facebook and Instagram, so take a look at who’s in the spotlight near you:

Ginya Izakaya – Atlanta

Like an English pub or a tapas bar, an izakaya is a casual spot for getting together over drinks and a bite. The authentic atmosphere at Ginya Izakaya is ideal for sake, shōchū, and a full menu of Japanese comfort foods.

Pagu – Boston

Inspired by generations of family culinary tradition and a rich background of international training, Chef Tracy Chang unites Japanese and Spanish concepts at Pagu. (And don’t forget the menu of specialty house cocktails!)

Thai Spice – Dallas

Chef Sangjan K brings decades of experience in Thailand to Dallas at Thai Spice, where she serves up classic staples alongside signature entrees with a personal touch. See why this award-winning spot is a local favorite!

Wanisa Home Kitchen – NYC

Family owned and operated, this cozy Cobble Hill institution is a Brooklyn favorite for authentic homestyle thai cuisine that’s been perfected over generations—including desserts like the WK Fried Banana!
