Black Restaurant Week: Nana’s Southern Kitchen

Black Restaurant Week

Black Restaurant Week is presenting its inaugural campaign in the Northwest region, with participation in food trucks, sweets and more.

Today’s feature is Nana’s Southern Kitchen in Kent. It’s named after Todd Minor’s great-grandmother Myrtle Henderson who was born in Goshen, Virginia, and later moved to Connecticut. As a mother and grandmother, she cooked and served family and friends all the familiar Southern foods you can now find in the restaurant.

Nana’s has also supported the community, including their annual tradition of serving 400 meals on Christmas Day for free.

“My great grandmother, Nana, used her food to bring people together, teach life lessons and welcomed everyone,” Minor said. “Service was in my great-grandma’s DNA. She made sure everyone always had a full belly, whether they were going to work, church or school. We do the same, ensuring our customers get exceptional service, even while on the go with our takeout meals.”

Nana’s Southern Kitchen is located at 10234 Southeast 256th St., Kent, Washington
