NEW YORK CITY (NBC/WNBC) - A delicacy or disgusting? That's the question surrounding the menu of a soon-to-open New York City restaurant.
The M. Wells Diner opens Thursday in Queens, and on the menu: horse meat.
Customers will have a chance to try, horse tartare, or raw horse meat imported from Canada.
Last year, Congress lifted a ban on the slaughter of horses in the U.S., although there is no real market for human consumption of horse meat in the states.
Many Americans consider horses to be pets, but in some European and Asian countries, it's seen as a delicacy.
