article imageForum Restaurant to reopen 4 months after Boston Marathon Bombing

By Lizz Riggs     Aug 15, 2013 in Food
Boston - After a four month closure due to the Boston Marathon bombing, Forum Restaurant is planning to Thursday night for a charity event, and will be open for the public on Friday, August 15th.
The second of the two pressure cooker bombs that went off in the Boston Marathon bombings exploded outside Forum Bar and Restaurant, at the marathon's finish line on April 15, killing three and injuring more than 260 people participating, volunteering and spectating at the 2013 Boston Marathon.
After four months, the restaurant has been restored and is reopening again with a new look, menu, chef and "stronger than ever."
Forum made a warm announcement on Facebook:
We are very proud to announce that after four long months of reconstruction since the Boston Marathon attack, Forum Bar & Restaurant will host a reopening celebration on Thursday, August 15th with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation, supporters in attendance during the Marathon, to finish what we started during that April morning. We will be open to the public starting Friday, August 16th for dinner service, with a new look, new chef, new menu and stronger than ever. We are eternally thankful to the city of Boston for the overwhelming outpour of support, words of encouragement, loving messages, and all of those who stood by us as we tackled this very complex and traumatic part of our lives. We would like to invite all of you to join us at the NEW Forum. We love you Boston.
The owner, Euz Azevedo, admits that he is nervous. "He knows the restaurant is part of history but hopes he's made enough changes to erase bad memories."
CBS report general manager Chris Loper said workers are adding the final touches, preparing for the opening.
“It’s exciting to be ready to re-open again, and welcome our guests back and the city of Boston back, and show we are strong and ready to go,” Loper said. "It was difficult to be closed for four entire months without any revenue. But I think with all the support we'll have we'll make it up very quickly."
Forum Restaurant will be open for dinner service starting this Friday.
