Twisted farm food with Midwestern roots hits the East Coast
UNCASVILLE, CT – Mohegan Sun is about to get a little twisted with the arrival of Hash House A Go Go, a new all-day dining spot opening in mid-December 2012. Hash House A Go Go will serve “twisted farm food” for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner at the restaurant group’s first East Coast location. Conceived of Midwestern roots, the concept launched in San Diego in 2000 and now boasts six additional outposts in Las Vegas, Reno and Chicago.
Hash House A Go Go, a name fusing the ideas of “old-style food” and “something new,” creates a fun, lighthearted dining experience offering traditional diner fare, spiced up with bold flavors and off-beat, over-the-top presentations. Founder Andy Beardslee developed the wide-ranging menus based on his Indiana upbringing, incorporating fresh ingredients and generous portions. Hash House A Go Go offers a wide range of options, including these highlights:

Fittingly, Hash House A Go Go’s beverage program is full of colorful and spirited cocktails to go along with the lively fare. Drinks like Johnny’s Famous BLT Mary trimmed with a fresh tomato wheel, smoked bacon slice, rib of romaine lettuce and toast or the Champagne Super Nova with mint and bubbly, will make the brunch crowd very happy. An eclectic wine and beer list round out the spirited portion of the menu. On the non-alcoholic side, the drink list showcases an assortment of freshly squeezed juices and lemonades like the Hash House favorite kiwi watermelon lemonade. For the caffeine addicts, the restaurant offers a variety of lattes and coffee drinks, including flavors like ‘smores mocha, caramel all over mocha and the banana latte.
The restaurant’s décor, like the food, will be one part farm, one part urban. From the old-school black-and-white farm photos to the relaxed booths or the all-new modern Tractor Bar, Hash House A Go Go is about having a good time—sophistication with no pretention. The restaurant will seat 210 guests, including the new Tractor Bar.
Hash House A Go Go has received national recognition from the likes of Martha Stewart, Al Roker, Rachel Ray, Dr. Phil and Adam Richman of the Travel Channel’s “Man Vs. Food.” The team behind the wildly popular restaurant looks forward to opening its first East Coast restaurant at Mohegan Sun. “We couldn’t be more excited to bring our twisted Midwestern fare to this region of the country,” said Jim Rees, Chief Operating Officer. “Hash House A Go Go will be a lively gathering place playing on the high-energy and fun-loving style of Mohegan Sun while treating guests to inventive, farm-fresh food, presented in a style that’s all our own.”
