WICKER PARK—Taxim soft-opened a new rooftop patio this past weekend featuring an imported Greek liquor, specialty cocktails, nearly a dozen wines, as well as a small menu focusing on salads and grilled meats and vegetables. The 80-seat space also houses an herb and vegetable garden and will feature an area to roast whole pigs next year. The official opening will happen on August 5. [DNAinfo]
