A culinary tour of Mid City’s new White Star Market

As the food hall trend takes over the country, Mid City is ready to get in on the action. White Star Market, the long awaited anchor of Government Street mixed-use development Square46, might currently be the hottest culinary destination in the city.

It took a while—the project was first announced in 2016 and originally slated to open last spring—but as of May, the doors are open, and the plates are heavy with food from nine stalls. We took a gastronomic tour of White Star before it opened to the public. Here’s what we found. whitestarmarket.com
