Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Michael Voltaggio might be best known for his win on season 6 of "Top Chef" or his West Hollywood restaurant Ink, but this Wednesday he'll be taking on the role of film curator at the L.A. Film Fest. He'll be partnering up with Good Food's Evan Kleiman to screen Bob Giraldi's "Dinner Rush" on Wednesday night.

The film is described as "a sleeper not enough people had the opportunity to discover ... set in a trendy Tribeca restaurant in New York. Part social comedy, part mafioso drama, part father and son story, it mixes its ingredients in fresh and unexpected ways. "

The screening will be followed by a conversation between Kleiman and Voltaggio. It will be shown at Regal Cinemas at LA Live on Wednesday at 7:50 p.m. Tickets are $13 and can be purchased here.
