Hi Thomas!

> - Indian.
> Now, while working with the current categories in mediawiki. If I were to group a restaurant under "Italian" in the city of New York and do the same with a restaurant in Paris. They would both be grouped under the same category "Italian". Whereas I would like them to be in 2 separate areas i.e: an "Italian" sub-category under New York and another "Italian" sub-category under Paris...

Haven't any idea how to achieve it with MediaWiki itself, but what about 
a workaround?

You could define categories like "Paris/Italian" and "New York/Italian" 
(no real subpages/subcatagories) or "Italian (Paris)" and "Italian (New 
York)"? Not very pretty, but it should do the job.
