Forsyth's Grits Cafe will rise again soon, a co-owner says.

This week, work crews are demolishing the burned-out restaurant so owners Wayne and Terri Wetendorf can rebuild on the site.

Today, Wetendorf said he's not sure when they'll be able to reopen.

He said it's taken longer than he expected to start demolishing and rebuilding.

But he said the popular downtown restaurant will come back "bigger and better."

The couple's upscale Southern Cafe was destroyed by a March fire that also damaged some nearby businesses.

They've run Grits in a 125-year-old building since 1999.

The fire put about 35 employees out of work.
