Who are the top 10 chefs who are actually working most days in their restaurants?

I'm visiting soon and know that many places are defined by chefs who no longer are involved much in the day to day. That's understandable... businesses grow and expand.

That said, I'd be interested to know where the talented owner/chef is still dishing it out most nights.
They need not be celebrity or running high end places... maybe it's a divey Chinese place, curry shop or corner pizza purveyor. Maybe it's a Thai mom who hasn't yet learned to pull back on the spices for westerners!

In fact I like the person who wants to make the best sandwich every invented versus the most swank night out. Know what I mean? Bold and different. Any recs? Thanks!
