9. Mario Batali

Estimated Worth: $23 Million

Batali is a New York staple. Babbo, Del Posto, OTTO, Manzo—if it's a nice restaurant with a name culminating in a vowel, you can bet Batali's got a hand in it. Most recently, he and fellow Italian celebrity chef Lidia Bastianich (sorry, she didn't make the list) opened Eataly, the 50,000-square-foot Italian goods store (with five restaurants inside). Once you eat at one of his spots, we bet you'll forget about the Crocs.
