Cheetos is currently in the middle of serving up some scrumptious looking cheesy chip dishes at The Spotted Cheetah, their exclusive pop-up restaurant in New York City. With only 300 seats available in their OpenTable reservations, you can imagine that they filled up quickly once news broke. According to the Wall Street Journal, it took just six hours for all of the seats to fill up, and a waitlist that was developed afterward had over 1,000 spots on it. Basically, that means getting into the restaurant now is nigh impossible.
Frito-Lay, the company that owns Cheetos, still wants to make sure you can at least get a tasting of what the Cheetos restaurant is like. To do that, they created an online cookbook that contains recipes for every single item that could be ordered off of The Spotted Cheetah's menu. So if you really wanted to know what it would be like to try their Flamin' Hot Mac N' Cheetos or wanted to recreate the Cheetos Crusted Fried Pickles for yourself, you can do that. You do have to go and buy the ingredients yourself, however, but with prices at the restaurant ranging from $8 to $22 based on what you order, you'll probably be saving a bit of money by DIYing it anyway.
Still, it would've been cool to experience the upscale Cheetos restaurant firsthand, and with the overwhelming demand for this first iteration, there could always be a second Cheetos pop-up happening just around the corner. It's definitely a possibility.
