Sicily Sewell and her mother are co-owners of a soul food restaurant called Pinky and Reds in Berkeley, California 2018. Sicily and her mother began the restaurant as part of the incubator program of La Cucina. This San Francisco-based nonprofit food incubator focuses on solving equity problems in business ownership for women, immigrants, and people of color.

Pinky and Reds were discovered on the UC Berkeley Campus in the MLK Student Union Building in Berkeley, California, and they worked on different soul food-inspired sandwiches. In 2019, on November 21, they celebrated the restaurant’s first birthday. But unfortunately, the restaurant closed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

After that, they started a Go Fund Me campaign to reopen the restaurant. “Pinky and Red’s” later established its coffee e-commerce brand with the tagline “Coffee for the Soul.” In addition, she was hired as the chef of a high-profile restaurant called Colors in Manhattan, New York City, in 2019.

Unfortunately, the restaurant closed in 2017. However, in 2019, the restaurant reopened with the mission of celebrating black food and culture in America, and she was excited to work in a mission-driven restaurant.

Sicily Sewell said, “I wanted to make really good, bad-ass food, to do something to tell black people that I admire them, and build a space where people of color don’t have to change or bargain with who they are to feel accepted.”

In December 2019, she said, “I want to celebrate the beauty of blackness and the magic that happens when we come together for a good fellowship around food.” So that’s what this space is for me, giving you black excellence and history — through the food, hospitality, and music,” she added.

Unfortunately, the restaurant closed just one month after reopening, and she was informed through text by ROC United’s executive director Sekou Siby. In January 2020, Sicily described the restaurant’s sudden closure as a tumultuous experience.

Sicily Sewell told, “ROC was not living up to its ideals. Systems were not in place to make Colors succeed when this place is the epitome of what ROC stands for.” Additionally, she told the New York Post that the restaurant’s reopening was just a “test Drive.”
