TRIBECA, Manhattan — A big, bold, flavorful culinary concept is coming to life in Tribeca.

The grilled cheeses are buttered up and the tables are all set for a 3-day only Cheetos inspired pop-up restaurant with a menu created by Food Network’s Anne Burrell.

“The playing and creating of the menu  and tasting and then just eating Cheetos was really a blast,” Burrell said.

The Spotted Cheetah opens Monday and will keep serving up cheesy dishes until Aug. 17. Right now, the wait list is more than 1,000 people long.

Chef Burrell took Cheetos out the bag and elevated the vending machine staple to new heights. Her personal favorite is the Mac n’ Cheetos. It has some bacon in it.

Here’s a look at the menu:

  • 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

Want to get your Cheetos on? The Spotted Cheetah will start accepting reservations made at their website and on the OpenTable app on Aug. 8.

All the recipes will also be in a digital cookbook at www.TheSpottedCheetah.com.
