The Boylston Street restaurant Forum was damaged in the bombing of the Boston Marathon, and guests who were present are the time are praising the efforts of its employees. The Associated Press says "They [the staff] rushed toward the street with towels to help the wounded, and evacuated customers, including an infant and a toddler, by guiding people to the restaurant's back staircase." The same article quotes a patron of the restaurant who says that the staff "had no panic in their voices" and "were calm and assertive" as they directed people to leave. "They could have run like the rest of us, but they stayed there and showed us the way out," says another. Globe reporter Jenn Abelson says that at least two staff members have suffered severe injuries. Forum is temporarily closed.
