UPPER WEST SIDE— Gael Greene reports that roving chef Michael Huynh has found a new home in Rain, the UWS restaurant which will be renamed after a huge makeover in 4 months. Apparently his new partners aren't worried: "Undaunted by Huynh’s love’em and leave’em rep, Scher is sure the deal he’s given him will cure the chef's attention-deficit-syndrome. 'We have promised each other we are committed to this project,' Scher says...'We’re going to be 50-50,' Huynh tells a friend. At 43 and recently married, Huynh snaps: 'I need to make money.'"
