A Vietnamese restaurant in Keene, New Hampshire can move forward with the name “Pho Keene Great.”

The city granted approval to the restaurant Friday after originally suggesting it may not allow the name, which some found offensive.

The controversy made headlines nationwide.

"We are excited to have a new restaurant open in the community," wrote City Manager Elizabeth Dragon in an email to one of the restaurant's owners. "We anxiously await your scheduled opening in March!"
