A pop-up dinner with top-notch wine pairings and a meal from a Top Chef alum is taking over Roy Choi's Commissary restaurant this week.

This Wednesday, the Charles Smith Wines Pop-up Dinner will feature a 5-course, family-style tasting menu from Seattle's acclaimed chef Zoi Antonitsas and wine pairings from celebrated winemaker Charles Smith. Highlights from the impressive-sounding Mediterranean and Greek-inspired menu include sea urchin arancini paired with a Vino Rosé, and milk braised pork shoulder with skordalia, a garlicky Greek purée, paired with K Vintners Stoneridge Cabernet. While Commissary has hosted other pop-ups, this will be their first wine-centric one.

Top Chef alum Antonitsas was named one of Food & Wines' Best New Chefs for 2015, among other accolades, and Smith was named 2014 Wine Enthusiast's Winemaker of the Year. We can also get behind Smith's philosophy of "wine for everyone, everyday." Roy Choi is clearly stoked for his arrival:

There will only be two seatings for the dinner—at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.—so, you'll definitely want to make your reservations here, soon.
