SOHO/TRIBECA—All at once, Michael Huynh is down to zero restaurants, having just exited both Bun and Mai House, where he had set up shop with Drew Nieporent. Gael Greene has more: "Michael Huynh is out at Bun—couldn’t get along with his partner, he says. Next move: A new noodle shop with new partners in Tribeca on Hudson Street, steps from Mai House where he walked out earlier, never saying he wouldn't be back. 'I'm just opening a little noodle shop for my wife,' he told owner Drew Nieporent, running off to dominate the kitchen at Bun, abandoning the savvy entrepreneur who helped him lift his cooking to new highs of sophistication...As for Bun, 'It's chaos now,' a fan reports."

Update: Or, perhaps, he's just on vacation.
