Here's this week's heaping serving of local restaurant news.

Sloop: John B’s rooftop bar opened Thursday at the island-style taco bar that restaurateur Garland Taylor (Home Team Grill, Twin Hickory Tavern) opened at Regency Square (Quioccasin side) in November.

  • Live music, games and, of course, drinks and tacos will all be happening on the rooftop.
