Is spaghetti "parm" a Buffalo thing?

Here in Buffalo some of the pasta houses will cover a plate of sauced spaghetti with mozzarella and run it under a broiler to brown the top.

Like so:

So it's not chicken parm or eggplant parm; you can get it with a meatball or sausage or whatever, but mostly it's just pasta, sauce and cheese.

My question is, is this a Buffalo thing? It's so simple that I assume it's done lots of places. But I don't live in lots of places, so I don't know.

(Apologies for the blog-pimpage, but I'm genuinely curious.)
