Chef Micah Martello — the man behind the award-winning King Creole food truck and and stands at St. Roch Market — is rebranding and developing a new restaurant in Mid City. The concept called Fete au Fete is headed for the White Star Market development in Baton Rouge. The location will feature Martello's classic Creole dishes including red beans & rice, shrimp & grits, and the much-touted crawfish poutine.

Martello grew up in Baton Rouge and says he's looking forward to bringing something back to his hometown. "White Star will give us a foothold in Baton Rouge to expand our catering operations and possibly food truck to the area," he says. The chef plans to continue operating his restaurant in St. Roch Market, which has been renamed Fete au Fete. The White Star Market is expected to open in next spring.
