Chef Christian DeLutis greeted us at the door with a special request. Since opening Koda about a year ago, the chef-owner has preferred the Harrisburg restaurant’s dishes to be photographed with staff, to showcase the culinary team alongside their dishes rather than focusing on solo foodie shots.
“It’s a team effort—the dishes don’t represent me alone,” says DeLutis. “There’s no ego. We strive to be good people with integrity, empathy, honesty, and we bring that into our food, cooking with love.”
