2008_12_scher.jpgWe take a moment now for Steve Scher, who died suddenly and unexpectedly on Saturday night, following a celebration for his 50th birthday. Scher was co-founder of Main Street Restaurant Partners—of Rain, Calle Ocho, Django, and Barbao fame, among others. He leaves behind his wife, Aimee, and son, Hudson. Says close friend David Rabin, "People who knew him are truly shaken. He was a wonderful guy who touched many lives in NYC." A memorial service is being held tomorrow, 12/9, at 11:45am at Riverside Memorial Chapel. [EaterWire]
