Thomas & Maria Mitchell


Thomas was born at his family’s home in the Lithuanian section of Baltimore. He grew up in Washington, D.C. where he met Maria Meletakos at Coolidge High School. Maria, who is 100% Greek, is known for her radiant beauty, her fiery spirt and her incredible cooking. Tom, who is known for his savviness in business, kind nature and “can do” attitude, was in love with Maria since high school and eventually married her. While Tom expanded his career as an entrepreneur, the couple moved to the Eastern Shore and began a family. Maria is the heart, soul and muse of our restaurant, from the murals of Santorini, Greece that grace our walls to the classic Greek additions to our menu that Maria has been mastering for years— like our baklava and pound cake! You’ll miss her presence at our restaurant due to her ongoing battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. Knowing that his restaurant would have to match Maria’s standards and quality Tom looked to the one man who was up creating his vision, Chef Michael Quattrucci.

Michael Quattrucci


Michael Quattrucci signed on as chef & project manager, and created a menu that explores the full flavors of the Mediterranean. Michael grew up in Maine in a large Italian family, which is where he discovered his love for cooking. He has fond memories of assisting his Grampy Q as a young boy in the kitchen, and this nostalgia can be found in Michael’s cooking today with dishes like our “Q” Pizza, a tribute to his Grandfather. He attended Johnson and Wales University in Providence, RI. Micheal spent the next 10 years in New England before moving to the Eastern Shore to be part of the restoration project of the Historic Tidewater Inn in Easton, Md. After the Inn sold, he moved on to the prestigious Talbot Country Club where he and Mr. Mitchell originally met. Michael and his wife, Ally, have two children. Today, with Tom’s support and Maria’s spirit, he aspires to bring new life, authentic food, fine wine, and good vibes to Trappe at both Momma Maria’s and The Coffee Trappe.

Bunny Murphy


To help Michael Quattrucci round out his team, he recruited longtime friend and colleague, Bunny Murphy. She’s a New Yorker with great style and impeccable taste. She met Michael when they were both working on the restoration project of the Tidewater Inn and Restaurant in Easton. Her resumé speaks for itself. She worked as an event coordinator and District Manager for a non-profit organization in New York City, and owned her own restaurant in Texas. Bunny has worked for the last 9 years in the Hotel Industry as a Director of Banquets and Restaurant Manager in Annapolis and Washington, D.C. areas. Our team couldn’t be more pleased with her addition. She is determined to create an atmosphere where family and friends will gather to forge memories for years to come.
