The Cheetos Pop-Up Restaurant Has Landed
ICYMI, Cheetos has launched a pop-up restaurant in downtown Manhattan, and it’s been aptly named The Spotted Cheetah. Teaming up with celebrity chef Anne Burrell on 211 West Broadway, New York City, customers will be treated to a full menu of Cheeto-infused delights during restaurant week. For just three days, the Cheetos pop-up will be slammed with New Yorkers. Dishes are moderately cheap for the city, too, ranging from just $8 to a modest $22.
Cheetos are downright cheesy, presumably fake, and the best snack of all time. Celebrity chef Anne Burrell put a creative twist on Cheetos that fulfilled the dreams of every 90s kid in a Cheetos meal. Want a list of some of the dishes that impressed us the most, with their combination of precision and innovation? Say no more. Cheetos grilled cheese and tomato soup, Cheetos meatballs, flamin’ hot mac n’ Cheetos, spicy Cheetos nachos, flamin’ hot limón chicken tacos, Cheetos sweetos crusted cheesecake, white cheddar Cheetos, and Cheetos sweetos apple crepes all made the cut, and then some.
Contrary to popular belief, the Cheetos restaurant is very classy and is certifiably fine dining. Customers also have the option of pairing their Cheetos dishes with either white or red wine. Personally, I think it pairs better with red.
You’ll either hate it or you’ll love it; there is no in between. PSA: if you’re not into heavy mantles of cheese or dense creaminess, this is not the place for you.
