Tis the season for pop-ups. With three already set for the next few days, here are two more for your radar: a two-day walk-up Italian street feast at two sites this weekend, and an eclectic seven-course dinner hitting Pike Place July 10.

Panino: Saturday, June 27, and Sunday, June 28

Chef Geneva Melby (former Juicebox chef and GM) is just back from a month in Italy and this weekend's pop-up features two of her favorite lesser-known street eats from Florence and the Ligurian coast. The tight menu is as follows: Lan Roc (grilled pork collar sandwiches (paninos) with salsa verde, pickled red onions, and a spicy red sauce) goes for $8; and Farinata (a chickpea frittata from Liguria served with sauces) goes for $3. The latter is gluten free, and vegan, too, if you skip the sauces.

Line up for one or both this Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (or until sellout) inside Independent Pizzeria across the street from Madison beach, or on Sunday from 7:30 p.m. until sellout, just outside Montana in its streetside parklet.

This is Melby's second pop-up, following a sold-out Spanish dinner at Juicebox last year. Both cards and cash are accepted, and in the street spirit of Panino, no reservations or seatings—just show up.

Oni Gastronomy: July 10

Chef Jay Midwood (Seatown, Boston's The Catered Affair and more) is hosting an adventurous seven-course, seafood-strong meal at Pike Place Atrium Kitchen blending styles from his native New England with the Pacific Northwest. Expect brassicas with geoduck, hay-baked potatoes with albacore, and more for $65, and bonus: wine is included. There are two seatings at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. with 15 seats each. View the full menu and book through Dyne.
