Restaurant damaged in marathon bombings reopens

BOSTON (AP) — The restaurant at the epicenter of the Boston Marathon bombings is reopening.

The second of the two pressure cooker bombs that went off at the marathon’s finish line on April 15, killing three and injuring more than 260, exploded outside the Forum restaurant.

It reopens Thursday for a charity event and will be open to the public on Friday. It is last of the Boylston Street businesses damaged in the explosions to reopen.

Owner Euz Azevedo says he’s nervous. He knows the restaurant is part of history but hopes he’s made enough changes to erase bad memories.

General manager Chris Loper says some people will visit out of curiosity, but only good food and good service will keep them coming back.

Forum employees were widely praised for helping blast victims.
