Hello

I would like to know whether the following sentences are both correct:

A. We went to a restaurant called "Chez Pierre"
B. We went to a restaurant named "Chez Pierre"

I think sentence A sounds ok but what about sentence B?

Thank You in advance.

    Well, B is grammatically correct, but it does sound odd. Searching through my brain it seems that we only used "named" for people and animals--don't know if there's a formal rule about it.
