Pop-Up Cheetos Restaurant To Open In New York City In August
Cheetos are going to be an upscale delicacy for at least two days in August when a pop-up restaurant, led by celebrity chef Anne Burrell, inspired by the snack opens in New York City.
The Spotted Cheetah will feature dishes curated by Burrell and will be open from August 15 until August 17.
“As a long-time Cheetos fan, I’m thrilled to join forces with a snack brand that is truly an iconic American staple,” Burrell said in a statement. “I had so much fun curating this specially crafted, one-of-a-kind menu for the first Cheetos restaurant – I can’t wait to see guests’ reactions.”
The three-course menu will feature items ranging from $8 to $22, with eleven items in total.
Besides utilizing all of the flavors of Cheetos already available – Cheesy, Flamin’ Hot, Flamin’ Hot Limón, Flamin’ Hot Chipotle Ranch, White Cheddar, and Cheddar Jalapeño – two sweet flavors will also be added.
Menu items range from the mundane – Cheetos Crusted Fried Pickles, Spicy Cheetos Nachos, Flamin’ Hot Mac n’ Cheetos – to the imaginative – Cheetos Meatballs, Cheetos Tomato Soup, Cheetos Sweetos Crusted Cheesecake.
“Once again, our fans have inspired us with their creativity and playfulness. We’ve seen their love for Cheetos exhibited through innovative dishes, desserts and beverages, which motivated us to create a restaurant that would bring a full Cheetos culinary experience to life,” Ryan Matiyow, senior director of marketing at Frito-Lay, said in a statement.
“The Spotted Cheetah is a fun and delicious way for Cheetos to celebrate a variety of favorite flavors in an upscale and playful culinary setting that will wow our guests.”
The only way to get a taste of these inventive dishes is to make a reservation through either the Open Table app or through the Cheetos website.
