Once again everyone ordered the same thing.
Today was the combination plate.
Lamb, rice, moussaka, pastichio, dolmades, etc.

We celebrated a birthday there, so I have dessert photos to share.

Hint: Save room for dessert! Their desserts are incredible.
I want to return for my birthday.

The dessert they served for the birthday cake is called

Thick milk custard pie, with phyllo, Topped with rich honey syrup)
It is wonderful! The birthday boy shared some with me.

Our group also ordered the chocolate cake and the flan.

The service here is fantastic!
Our waiter is interested in cameras and I enjoyed discussing the history of cameras with him.

I've used a variety of cameras over the years (digital, 35mm, large format 4x5, disc, 126, 110, underwater, pinhole, 3d camera) but he had experience with medium format cameras too, which I've never used.

Dinner at Pompei's in River Forest

Everyone ordered the same thing, the lasagna.
So I don't have a lot of variety to show you.
I would've ordered the spinach-ricotta pizza, but they were out and they said it would be an hour before more was available.

So here are photos of the bread, garlic-cheese bread and the lasagna.
