365 Things to Do in Boston - New Tips Daily

Forum on Boylston Street is Open!

Posted by Hillary Waldron on Fri, Aug 16, 2013

Lforumast night, the last business affected by the Boston Marathon bombing reopened on Boylston Street. Forum, which was the site of one of the second explosion, held a private fundraiser to benefit the Joe Andruzzi Foundation. The event was a huge success for the foundation and showed the strength of Bostonians coming to support the restaurant.

The owner, Euz Azevedo, did a complete update of the space both upstairs and down. The ground floor has a sweeping bar that goes almost the entire length of the restaurant. The entire space is brighter and livelier which was the goal to help people erase negative memories. As Euz told the Boston Globe, "We made a decision to brighten the space," he said. “We wanted to erase those memories that people had. I just didn’t want to open with the same look because if you come back to a place where something bad happened to you, you’re going to have those memories again.”

In addition to the renovations, Chef Dan Schroeder invites guests to enjoy a brand new menu, focusing on fresh seafood and traditional favorites. The menu can be viewed on their website

Forum will be open to the public today. Reservations can be made through Open Table or by calling (857) 991-1831.
