Chefs/owners in NYC who are also in (or were formerly in) LA?

I need your help!

I'm trying to pull together a list of chefs/owners who either have places in both NYC and LA or recently left LA for NYC (if you want to know what this is for you can send me an email...too complicated to go into here).

Here's what I've come up with so far - any additions would be oh so much appreciated

Mario Batali
Joe Bastianich
Thomas Keller (don't think his LA restaurant is open yet though)
Todd English
Laurent Tourondel

*Gordon Ramsay - he's out at the London NYC so he doesn't count
*Govind Armstrong - he just got the boot at the Cooper Square Hotel so he also doesn't count.

Thanks in advance - you guys always have all the answers :)
