After a long day at the office stringing words together in varying degrees of coherence, the last thing we want to do is keep communicating in complete sentences.

The careers of many of today’s food personalities were launched off the wings of a food truck (Roy Choi and Doug Quint, to name a few). But what happens when it goes the other way around?

Sometimes the results are good. Sometimes the results are weird. Sometimes they disappear into the night like a Jewish prophet. But when celebrity chefs step out of the kitchen, you know that you’re not going to get your normal, quirky, moustache-wearing server-serviced food truck — and that can be a good thing.
(Note: Rocco DiSpirito’sNow Eat This is not on this list, because it does not qualify as “Best” at anything.)
