He’s probably one of the most famous — or at least the most famous roving — chef in the world. And this week, Anthony Bourdain made a brief stop in Seattle to have lunch with Nathan Myhrvold at his Modernist Cuisine Cooking Lab.

Bourdain was in town for his “Close to the Bone” tour at the Paramount Monday night. Seattle Eater tracked his moves, wondering where he would choose to eat next.

The following day, the host of CNN’s Parts Unknown and his foodie friends had what sounds like an impressive meal at the Modernist Lab with the former Microsoft CTO and co-founder of Intellectual Ventures Nathan Myhrvold.

Myhrvold is a certified food geek, using technology to concoct wild creations in the kitchen.

From Seattle Eater:

“Bourdain had a light (14-course) lunch yesterday at Nathan Myhrvold’s Modernist Cuisine Cooking Lab, along with Ray and Christian Walker of Maison Ilan, Armandino Batali and Gina Batali of Salumi, Scott Heimendinger of Sansaire, Eric Johnson of Stateside, Zoi Antonitsas of Westward and Little Gull, Charles Smith of Charles Smith Wines, and Dezi Bonow of The Carlile Room.”

We’d love to have been privy to that dining show. Myhrvold is known for his tech-inspired culinary creations and his massive tome to the art and science of cooking, “a six-volume, 2,400-page, 40-pound epic called Modernist Cuisine.” Here’s hoping someone gets a hold of that tasting menu and puts it online soon.

Bourdain also dropped by Ethan Stowell’s Goldfinch Tavern at Four Seasons but “it was unclear yet if that was early dinner or just a stopover.”

According to Facebook, he also had some Serious Pie after his event Monday evening, too:

We do know he will be trying some Serious Pie at the VIP reception after the show tonight! Can’t wait! Tom Douglas Restaurants
