Hags Offers a Queer Twist to Dining in NYC
August 8, 2022, 6:27.58 pm ET



Hags like to call itself a tiny New York City restaurant by Queer people for all people. Located in the former home of Momofuku Noodle bar and Ko, the restaurant has just enough space for a few small tables with a five-seat olive green bar in the back with a green curtain overhead. The playful menu offers two choices. There is a Vegan option ($145) including Chef Lo’s Homo Salad with flowers, quince and radish; Tomato with fava sesame and gooseberry; Cauliflower with mushroom, pine nut and coriander; Tempe with gold rice, squash; and Chocolate with black cocoa, Elliot pecan, and golden raises. The Omnivore menu ($155) includes some of the same options, plus Lobster with chayote and summer peppers; Pork & Beans with melted carrot, endive and smoked oyster; and Chewy Corn with currents, sobghum and brown butter.

Hags is located at 163 1st Ave, New York.
