Wayne Stabiler is a well-known Baton Rouge restauranteur who started in the food business in the early 1980's while still attending high school. He would drive to the coast to buy seafood straight from the fishermen and sell it to local markets. His love for seafood led him to open a seafood wholesaling business by the time he was 21 years old. Within a few years, Wayne's love of seafood and talent for cooking led him into the catering business and eventually restaurant ownership.
As owner of both Little Village Restaurants, Stab's Steak & Seafood, Palermo Ristorante, and Stab's Prime Steak and Seafood, Wayne has a unique understanding of the business and what it takes to be successful.
