I'm  Sadaya Lewis, but you can call me Daisy. My family call me Daisy Mae.

Modern Southern Table owner Sadaya "Daisy" Lewis started her restaurant and catering business ten years ago. She combines her experience cooking southern-style cuisine with an MBA in marketing and finance from Capital University.
Lewis has built an incredible Southern comfort food concept that offers fried chicken, gumbo, macaroni and cheese, and other Southern classics.

Her love of cooking started when she was nine and has continued through her adult life. Everything about the process brings Lewis joy, from selecting ingredients and creating new dishes to telling the stories of her ancestors and providing guests with one-of-a-kind culinary experiences. She seeks to give guests the same comfort she had when her family would host meals and unite around the table.

"I can't wait to share a good, wholesome meal with the people of Columbus, a community I've considered family for a long time," said Lewis. "I'm looking forward to sharing meals made from scratch and with love; meals that will remind people of home; meals that my ancestor handed down as they journey through life—all while hoping to create a new age gathering around the table, A Modern Southern Table.
