Well, it's not like Serious Eats' Robyn Lee was a talking head on No Reservations, but you do see the back of her head on the show. FoSE Kathryn Yu captured the moment. There's Robyn in the background having lunch at Momofuku Ssam Bar.

Strangely appropriate, as the episode had to do with food porn, which Robyn excels at.

Bourdain talks about food porn in this blog post and in this video with David Chang, where Bourdain says:

It's anti-food in a sense. This is the thing with the food nerds—they're your most loyal followers. They spread the gospel, for sure, but ironically, in their fervor, they become ... like butterfly collectors. Instead of just appreciating the thing, it's all about acquiring it and putting it in the book.

Chang banned photography in one of his restaurants, Momofuku Ko, in June of last year.

If only the producers knew they were in the presence of food porn greatness, they could have gotten the perspective of a so-called food nerd.
