Meanwhile in Atlanta you’ll meet three close girlfriends who believe their new food stand is #BlackGirlMagic at its finest and a total labor of love and a young and already seasoned restaurateur who has successfully launched Negril Village ATL, a version of the popular NYC location. Plus, so much more.
