Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey shared a meal together last night at Dan Tana's in LA. It's been a few months since the pair filmed their Grey's Anatomy season seven finale, and, during the hiatus, Patrick kept busy racing cars and promoting Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Ellen, meanwhile, has had an active Summer of hanging out with her family on both the East and West Coasts. Ellen and Patrick's doctor drama returns with a two-hour special on Sept. 22, though there were rumors he might not return after a misconstrued quote in Italy's Vanity Fair. The magazine insinuated that Patrick may leave the show at the end of the eighth season, and Patrick cleared things up during a recent sit-down with David Letterman. Patrick said fans shouldn't be "too worried" about McDreamy's future since they're just doing contract renegotiations.
