Cheetos, the popular puffy cheese snack brand, is diving into the world of high-end delicacy with New York's opening of 'The Spotted Cheetah' -- a Cheetos-based pop-up restaurant run by celebrity chef Anne Burrell.
The Spotted Cheetah will consist of a three-course menu which features ornate appetizers like the 'Purrfectly Fried Green Tomatoes' and 'Cheetos Meatballs,' followed by a main course of Mac n Cheese Cheetos and Cheetos tacos. The cheese-heavy menu features specialty crafted one-of-a-kind items cooked to surprise guests and to demonstrate the diversity of the iconic American snack.
The senior-director of marketing at Frito-Lay claims that the restaurant drew inspiration from the endless DIY concoctions that fans of the snack have shared online. The specialty menu items will be available in a Cheetos cookbook which will be released after the pop-up closes.
