I don't have a photo of the place (I'm posting a link to the article underneath) but there's a cheesesteak place here in Philadelphia titled "Chink's Steaks"

There's been many protests for years to get the name changed. Many people defended the name and that it was never racially motivated. Turns out the original owner "looked Chinese" so that's how he got the nickname c***k. Last I heard the name is being changed to "Joe's Steaks". More uproar from the people who loved the original name and is accusing everyone of being PC.

Here's the article: http://www.philly.com/philly/food/Chinks-Steaks-changing-its-name.html

In Toronto, when you're thinking high-class Italian toilets, only one name wafts to mind: Canaroma.
