What nights have best odds of the top chef being at the helm (in Paris)?

Hi all,

What nights (Monday, Friday, whatever) have best and worst odds of the top chef being at the helm, in Paris, in very good restaurants?

I'm assuming that the main chef, if not the founder, is usually there in bistros and the like (Le Richer, etc.). I'm also assuming the Yannick Aleno isn't like to show up at Terroir Parisien.

But to highlight with specifics, when might Aleno be most likely to be at Ledoyen? (closed Sunday)

And when might Alex Manes be most likely to be at the Atelier du Robuchon at St. Germain (never seen Robuchon, but last time main guy Manes was not there either.) Atelier is open 7/7.

Thanks for any input on this question, regardless of the specific restos I mentioned.
