Forum, which was seriously damaged during the marathon bombings, will reopen bigger and better than ever. We hear from a rep that Barros is going to remake the menu with Asian and French influences (he worked at Myers + Chang before heading to Market to work for Jean Georges Vongrichten). And until Forum reopens this summer, where can you find this succulent cuisine? Not to worry!

Barros will host several ticketed “test” dinners at Forum’s sister restaurant space, Noche, during renovations. The first dinner happens on May 17; get tickets at Forum's site later this week. Naturally, proceeds benefit the One Fund Boston.

Want to know more about Barros? Grub did an extensive piece on his audition for Jean Georges. The man has stamina.
