CAIRO, Ga. — A Cairo business finally opened its doors after a delay caused by the tornado in early March.

You may remember last month when we introduced you to Jennifer Outwater, a woman who helped feed the community, even though her restaurant wasn't , yet open to the public.

Brasington Place had a successful first week open, and staff are preparing for their second, hoping it's even better.

Guests came from all over the region to taste the Italian food cooked up by Jennifer Outwater and her staff.

More than five weeks ago, however, this restaurant looked very different. Brasington Place, like many businesses and homes, was in the dark following last month's tornado.

Outwater helped feed the community then, not expecting anything in return. However, many of the people she fed came out this week in support.

"When there's 1,000 plates going out the door, how can you keep up with everybody's face? It was lovely that several of the couples came back in to eat now that their lives have settled down a little bit," said Outwater. "What a nice circle to be able to feed them once and feed them again on the back end when life's a little bit easier on the back-end."

The response to the freshly made food was overwhelmingly positive, which makes the staff that much more excited to continue feeding the community, well into the future.

Outwater told us that some dishes will be seasonal depending on the meat and produce that's available. Others, like the lasagna, will be staples on the menu.

Brasington Place is open for dinner, Wednesday through Saturday and lunch on Sunday.

Reservations are recommended, but not required.
