Let it Rain: The made-over hot spot is set to reopen next month
In June, the redesigned Rain will be unveiled, with a new name (Ame, Japanese for “rain”), a tip-to-tail renovation and some fresh entertainment value. Club king Charles Khabouth (Tattoo Rock Parlour, Spice Route), who has been shaping the party scene since the first bodysuit trend, has teamed up with co-owners and Made to Order stars Guy and Michael Rubino to give the Mercer Street digs a new do.
The updated look—featuring heritage woods and a private dining room to rival Colborne Lane’s—comes courtesy of the cutting-edge design team Munge Leung. The new incarnation will feature an expanded menu that will keep Guy Rubino busy in the revamped open kitchen, conjuring his immaculately detailed itsy-bitsy creations.
We’ll be talking to all three restaurateurs this week to get the dish on Ame. Bring on the storm.
