New York (WNBC) -- A delicacy or disgusting? That's the question surrounding the menu of a new New York restaurant.

The M. Wells Diner opens Thursday in Queens and will feature horse meat on its menu.  Customers will be able to order 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.
