At least three sources including the ever so reliable Village Voice.
I really don't care if they can't spell (most embarrassing) or they named it after grandpa Faro who then threw a fit and caused them to change the story (somewhat embarrassing), or they really named it Faro (and not il faro or el faro or o faros) because of some hyper-sophisticated argument about cross-roman cooking (can't see their genius) and not because they don't speak any of the languages in question and don't see the awkwardness (overreaching, but okay).
I've brought Aldea as an example regarding which you'd have made exactly the same claims (how plausible is it that mega-Portuguese chef Mendes won't know the word in his "own" language?)
And again, we will absolutely never know because the story has to be supported.
p.s. what's Atera?
