Maddi's Southern Bistro grew from two loves, fine food and good art! Owners, Diane and Madis Sulg also own the award-winning Maddi's Gallery, featuring fine American craft, artist-made jewelry and Southern folk art. They are joined in the business by their daughter, Michaella, and her husband Jon Dalton.
On art buying trips the four spent an almost equal time seeking out great restaurants across the county. Since Jon's background is in restaurant management, it wasn't long before they were talking about a restaurant of their own.
The concept for Maddi's Southern Bistro took several years to develop. Using their art and craft background, they sought out craftspeople to make the lighting, furniture and bar, as well as the dishes, glassware, placemats, even the salt and pepper shakers. Covering the walls with folk art was a natural and many of the region's finest folk artists hand-painted small wooden trays so the check is presented with a final artistic flair.
But the real star is the food. Executive Chef, Jon DuBay and his staff use fresh ingredients and a sophisticated approach to preparing Southern favorites. Outstanding wines complement the handcrafted cuisine. With genuine excitement and hospitality, we invite you to come and enjoy Maddi's Southern Bistro.
