Classical splendor unearthed!

I should have posted these last month, but when I went to California I left behind my camera's CompactFlash memory, so only just now have I stumbled across some previously unpublished photos of what can only be called neoclassical archaeological masterpieces. The following pictures were all taken at a excellent Italian restaurant Dennis discovered. Because of its decor as well as its food, I think it should be made the official Classical Values Restaurant.

First, some amazing murals actually painted inside the men's room.

Here's Mural One:

And from the opposite men's room wall, Mural Two:

And, by the front doorway, a bust of an unidentified (and somewhat stylized) Caesar directs his gaze at those who are about to eat, as well as those who have eaten and are about to leave:

Et tu much, Brute?

Very Classical indeed. Thank you.

If you're going to keep the name and location of the restaurant secret from your loyal readers, could you at least tell us which hemisphere it's in? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease.

Yes, just where is this paragon situated? And do they charge admission to the gent's?

It's called Fellini's and while they didn't charge me to use the bathroom, I didn't ask whether cameras were permitted in there.

Nice writeup here.
