Anne Burrell created the “elevated” menu

Alert to all the stoners: A restaurant with Cheetos in all the menu items is popping up in Tribeca next week — with a menu created by spiky-haired TV chef Anne Burrell.

The Spotted Cheetah will be at 211 West Broadway from August 15 to August 17th, according to the website.

The very on-brand menu is divided into “dangerously cheesy starters,” “the big cheese,” and “sweet spot.” Burrell and Cheetos are calling them “elevated” and “upscale” versions of Cheetos dishes.

Options include “purrfectly fried green tomatoes” that come with a white Cheetos crust, “flamin’ hot limon chicken tacos” with Cheetos used as a topping for tacos, and “Cheetos Sweetos crusted cheesecake,” a goat cheese cheesecake with a sweet Cheetos in the crust. Time Out New York writes that all dishes cost between $8 and $22.

Here is a photo of the particularly cringe-worthy Cheetos meatballs:

Who asked for this?

Burrell is best known for being a television personality, and she recently opened new Brooklyn restaurant Phil & Anne’s Good Time Lounge.

The entire website is written as if Cheetos’ mascot Chester Cheetah did the copy. On it, “Chester” calls Burrell “the most dangerously cheesy celebrity chef,” which both uses the brand’s tagline and fittingly describes a chef whose New York City restaurant has a menu item called “hogs in hoodies.”
