BOSTON 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.

"There were some windows blown out and damage to the flooring downstairs," general manager Chris Loper told CBS Boston affiliate WBZ.

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.
