Foteos â€œFrankâ€ Maragos - Chef and Owner
Frank Maragosâ€™ 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, â€œThe greatest memories of my entire life are based around food.â€ Frank studied culinary arts at Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, and later served as executive chef of the cityâ€™s five-star Gatehouse Restaurant.
By 2002, Frank had arrived at Virginiaâ€™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.
Frankâ€™s vision for Fotiâ€™s? A comfortable environment with superb service, where people find pleasure in great food and drink. â€œSue and I want our guests to enjoy sharing time together, to build memories, because thatâ€™s what makes a meal truly special.â€
