Passion and Persistence
Originally from the Marche region on Italy’s Adriatic coast, Fabio Trabocchi is widely celebrated among the world's leading restaurateurs. A Food & Wine Magazine Best New Chef and recipient of the esteemed James Beard Award, Trabocchi has passionately pursued the goal of creating a world class hospitality organization offering the finest dining experiences in the world. His growing restaurant group, with properties in Washington DC, Northern Virginia, Miami, and Venice, Italy, has brought him many accolades, yet his inspiration remains grounded in family traditions from Italy, Spain, and the United States.
Whether at his Michelin-starred fine dining flagship, Fiola; the Spanish seafood and tapas mecca, Del Mar; the glamorous destination for Italian coastal cuisine, Fiola Mare; or his neighborhood pasta house, Sfoglina - Trabocchi's signature remains an uncompromising commitment to quality and making guests feel special at every visit.
Since 2009, Trabocchi has built Fabio Trabocchi Restaurants into one of the preeminent restaurant groups in the world. Trabocchi has received acclaim from media including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Food & Wine, Esquire, Departures, GQ, CBS, NBC, Washingtonian, and dozens of others.
