For anyone obsessed with food, the Showtime series offered "a never-ending supply of high-end and fine-dining porn: omakase tasting menus personally served by David Chang, secret hedge fund ideas dinners at Del Posto, forbidden delicacies like ortolan eaten in quasi-Masonic ritualistic manner alongside Wiley Dufresne," says George Reynolds. "By the end of Season 4, though, something seems to have shifted in the Billionsverse. There’s still the odd scene of debauchery, and the odd reminder that these characters live lives very unlike ours. But the focus seems different: tighter, more domestic, less extravagant. And the food on display has changed, too. Where once uni and bluefin tuna (only sometimes correctly seasoned) were the show’s bread and butter, in these later episodes, it’s far more likely to be actual bread and butter that the characters are eating. One of the best restaurant shows on television started spending more time talking about homely fare like pancakes and pies. Which raises an obvious question: Has Billions sneakily always been about the other kind of dough?"
