CHICAGO (WLS) -- We are now midway through Chicago Black Restaurant Week.

It's a celebration of African American-owned eateries that encourages people from all over the city and suburbs to give these restaurants a try.

Terrell and Tanja stopped by one featured restaurant in Bronzeville. Friistyle has been open for six months, drawing a steady stream of visitors with its Belgian-style Pomme Frites.
