As for the menu, it looks just as dangerously cheesy as you'd expect. The brains behind the operation belong to Chef Anne Burrell -- a Food Network personality, Institute of Culinary Education instructor, and self-avowed Cheetos fan. She's crafted a full three-course menu that includes a Cheetos-infused mac and cheese as well as Flamin’ Hot Limón Chicken Tacos (pictured above). We've reprinted the full menu here:
Dangerously Cheesy Starters
- Cheetos Crusted Fried Pickles + Creamy Ranch
- Cheetos Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup
- Cheetos Meatballs
- Purrfectly Fried Green Tomatoes
The Big Cheese
- Flamin’ Hot and White Cheddar Mac n’ Cheetos
- Cheetos Mix-ups Crusted Chicken Milanese
- Spicy Cheetos Nachos
- Flamin’ Hot Limón Chicken Tacos
- Cheetos Sweetos Crusted Cheesecake
- Cheetos Sweetos Sweet and Salty Cookies
- White Cheddar Cheetos and Cheetos Sweetos Apple Crepe
For those unable to resist the draw of Cheetos Meatballs, don't walk, run to make a reservation over at TheSpottedCheetah.com. Space at the restaurant is available only by reservation, and the three-day pop-up will only be around from August 15-17. That's just how the Cheeto breaks.
The Spotted Cheetah will be located at 211 W. Broadway in Tribeca and near SoHo. If you're interested in drinking a pint or two afterward, that's the same address as Distilled, a bar and public house The New York Times once described as "confoundingly friendly."
