If you're ready for a new fine-dining experience, it's time to visit
Foti's Restaurant in Culpeper, Virginia.
The superb service, delicate flavors, and extraordinary wines rival those of the finest restaurants in
the Washington, D.C., area.
Indeed, owners Frank and Sue Maragos refined their talents at the world-famous
Inn at Little Washington prior to opening Foti's in 2005.
Yet the friendly atmosphere and small-town hospitality are uniquely
Foti's, which is why the establishment
bears Frank's childhood nickname. "It's like we're family, like we've known
each other forever," he says.
An hour's drive from Fairfax to rural Culpeper carries you to a world where fresh, all-natural produce are
as close as next door. Whether you're seeking a casual lunch or an elegant evening, it's worth the trip!
In season, Foti's menu revolves around the finest local products, including grass-fed beef and lamb, handmade
cheeses, and heirloom vegetables and herbs.
Or if you prefer, seafood barely a day out of the water arrives by air three times a week. Savor tuna from
Hawaii, salmon from Alaska, lobster from Maine, or sea scallops from Massachusetts.
Chef Maragos says guests often ask for his secret to the restaurant's delectable dishes. "Mother Nature makes
the flavor," he answers. "We just take care of it and bring it to you."
So enjoy an evening drive down scenic country roads. Or, better yet, make a day of it and explore
Culpeper and all that Virginia's Piedmont has to offer.
Whenever you're ready, settle down at Foti's for an enchanting meal that combines
all-natural ingredients, delightful presentations, outstanding wines,
impeccable service, and the leisure to enjoy it all.
What you'll experience is pure magic.
A Name to Remember
In Culpeper, Foti's Is Greek for Great
Foti's is a textbook example of what a good education will do for you. The three principals behind
this summer arrival to Culpeper spent a combined 14 years at the Inn at Little Washington,
a destination that has won just about every top honor a restaurant can in this country. In
their new environment, the three demonstrate, meal after meal, how much they absorbed from
some of the best teachers in the business; in less than six months, Foti's has become A
Restaurant You Really Need to Know About Even If You Don't Live Nearby.
