Oh Dear, the NYT Visits the Outer Provinces Again

They don't even pretend to care to bother.
Maggiano, an upscale Italian restaurant in Philadelphia’s Little Italy, hosted a Paint the Pope party last Saturday, where patrons paid $65 for wine, a dinner and an art class where they tried to paint Pope Francis.

Maggiano's Little Italy is a chain Italian restaurant, not really what one thinks of as "upscale." Philadelphia has no neighborhood called "Little Italy" and while there is an Italian-American neighborhood, it's nowhere near Maggiano's Little Italy. That is simply in the name of the chain restaurant, which has approximately 50 locations across the country, apparently creating "Little Italy" neighborhoods throughout the country.
