10 Celebrity Chefs Who Actually Cook in Their Restaurants Slideshow

Slide 1 of 10
April Bloomfield: The Breslin, The John Dory, The Spotted Pig (New York)

The knife-wielding, tattooed badass chef (literally, she's on The Daily Meal's Top 10 Badass Women Chefs in America) who favors rich, meaty, buttery foods has circled around the mini-empire she runs with co-owner, Ken Friedman.


Bloomfield's New York adventure started at The Spotted Pig in the West Village before opening the menu-bending The Breslin and The John Dory, both conveniently located in Midtown's ACE Hotel. You may not find her in all three restaurants every night, but she's regularly seen behind the pass in The Breslin's open kitchen.
