Would a chef let you into their kitchen?

My gf asked me if we could see the kitchen of this restaurant. I don't want to say what resto; but it's nothing too fancy; just a simple bistro. We have gone to several kitchens before, but that's because I actually had a personal relationship with the chef or sous chef. This place, I just happen to like the food, and frequent enough that the chef knows my name, and has offered to make off menu items before.

I told my gf - "well, we could ask." I feel very weird asking someone that I don't know on a personal level to show me the kitchen. Is this an odd request to make?
