New chef at Coda, apparently

Maybe this is old news, but went to Coda the other night with thoughts of turkey meatloaf in my head, and the menu was totally different. (No burger, even, though apparently they will still make you the same great burger if you know to ask.) Lots more fish, more local produce. Waitress said something about a new chef, but I didn't catch who it was. Anyway, despite the lack of the longed-for meatloaf, it was FANTASTIC. We had a tomato salad, zucchini fritters (so so good), and I had a special of herb-crusted haddock with creamed corn and roasted little potatoes all on top of bacony kale. Haddock is not the tastiest fish in the world, but this was out-of-sight delicious. Could dial down the salt a notch or two, though.

    The new chef is Charlie Redd, formerly a sous chef at Harvest. I've never tried his food.

      Interesting, I wonder if they changed the lunch menu, i will check it out.

        I can't believe that they would take the burger off the menu.

        Hopefully, it will have offerings for those of us who might not want a full entree. And people who hate fish, like my DP.
