Foteos “Frank” Maragos - Chef and Owner
Frank Maragos’ love of food and family were born early, in the heart of a close-knit Greek family in sleepy Minot, North Dakota. His father and other relatives owned a grocery, a butcher shop, a restaurant and a hotel.
Today he says, “The greatest memories of my entire life are based around food.” Frank studied culinary arts at Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, and later served as executive chef of the city’s five-star Gatehouse Restaurant.
By 2002, Frank had arrived at Virginia’s famed Inn at Little Washington. He quickly rose to the position of executive sous chef, directing every aspect of food preparation -- from the culinary to the artistic.
Frank’s vision for Foti’s? A comfortable environment with superb service, where people find pleasure in great food and drink. “Sue and I want our guests to enjoy sharing time together, to build memories, because that’s what makes a meal truly special.”
