EXECUTIVE CHEF

Nicki Lewis
Executive Chef

Born in Washington D.C. and raised in New Smyrna Beach Florida, Chef Nicki Lewis’ culinary career hasn’t stopped, even for a second, since her time as a pastry student at UCF.

She was presented with many versatile opportunities over the years, from catering cook to pastry chef to sous chef, but her time apprenticing under award-winning celebrity chef Art Smith (personal chef to Oprah Winfrey) made the greatest impact. 

Pairing her extensive training with a passion for approachable southern cuisine, Executive Chef Nicki Lewis is shaking things up at Cafe 44.
