Crunch on this. Cheetos to be menu’s main ingredient at NY restaurant

WASHINGTON — A pop-up restaurant in New York City features a menu with entirely Cheetos-inspired dishes.

The Spotted Cheetah, at 211 W. Broadway, will be open only three days, from Aug. 15 to Aug. 17, and seating is by reservation only.

Celebrity chef Anne Burrell, the spiky-blonde haired co-host of Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America, created the menu.

“As a long-time Cheetos fan, I’m thrilled to join forces with a snack brand that is truly an iconic American staple,” said Burrell.

“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!”
