An Italian restaurant in Washington, D.C., has apologized for inadvertently hosting a white nationalist group Friday night.
On its Facebook page, Maggiano's Little Italy said it wasn't aware it was hosting the alt-right National Policy Institute. The restaurant said the reservation was made at the last minute under a different name.
After the event, an attendee's tweet appeared to show a "heil Hitler" salute, which Maggiano's called "extremely offensive."
