DECATUR Upper Room, the weekly Filipino pop-up from chef Andrew Bantug and his girlfriend, Joyce Lau, is changing venues. Serving out of Buckhead Japanese restaurant Tomo since November, Upper Room will move to Taiyo Ramen (formerly Makan) in downtown Decatur, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The change comes because Bantug is now on board as Taiyo’s executive sous chef. The pop-up will continue to operate on Sunday evenings.

RABUN COUNTY — For the second year in a row, former Dynamic Dish chef-owner David Sweeney will run the kitchen Tiger Mountain Winery’s Red Barn Cafe in north Georgia.
