If they're not adding avocado or unicorn-themed treats to their menus, New York chefs are busy searching for the next popular snack food to use in their recipes. The latest to receive a pop-up restaurant in their honor is every stoner's favorite cheesy chip, Cheetos. The result of a collaboration between Frito-Lay (the makers of Cheetos) and Anne Burrell, a TV Chef on the Food Network, The Spotted Cheetah is landing in New York's trendy Tribeca neighborhood for three days only.
As expected, the menu will be completely bonkers, packed full of unique and tasty creations, ranging from Cheetos meatballs and Cheetos-topped tacos to Cheetos-breaded fried green tomatoes and Cheetos Sweetos-crusted cheesecake. And if you're questioning whether Cheetos are really that popular, think again. This is not the first time NYC has welcomed these cheesy tastes of heaven into its culinary scene, with Boahaus in the East Village adding Cheeto-fried chicken bao to its menu for 420.
You don't need to be a stoner to visit, but you do need to be patient. It's already completely booked up on all three days, but you can still join the waiting list on the eatery’s website. Go check it out at 211 West Broadway from Tuesday, August 15 to Thursday, August 17. Don't miss out.
