Ellen Pompeo is semi-retired from starring in Grey’s Anatomy, and clearly the actor is enjoying the luxury of having a little more free time. On Thursday, October 5, she was spotted having lunch with a friend at Tuscan restaurant E Baldi in Beverly Hills.
The two certainly seemed to be in good spirits as they headed back to their car after the meal. Both were dressed casually for the outing. Pompeo cuffed a pair of extremely wide-leg jeans for the occasion, pairing the pants with a black T-shirt, Aviator sunglasses, a small black handbag, brown belt, and burgundy ballet flats. Her hair was pulled back in a low ponytail with a middle part.
Ellen Pompeo is currently taking a deliberate step back from Grey’s Anatomy after 18 years on the award-winning primetime show. Her character, Meredith Grey, was given a somewhat underwhelming sendoff during its midseason premiere in February 2023, although there are signs she may return in some capacity later on. At a minimum, though, Pompeo will continue to provide her signature voiceovers for the show’s forthcoming twentieth season.
