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.
