The Spotted Cheetah opened yesterday in New York City's Tribeca neighborhood.

The first-ever restaurant "devoted to all things Cheetos," The Spotted Cheetah is a collaboration between celebrity chef Anne Burrell and the Cheetos brand.

The restaurant's three-course menu features appetizers, entrees, and desserts all inspired by Cheetos.

We were lucky enough to snag a spot during opening night — reservations sold out the night they became available, and the restaurant is only open for three days.

The "purrfectly" fried green tomatoes were indeed fried just right, but if we didn't already know the breadcrumbs used to fry them were made with jalapeño white cheddar Cheetos, we wouldn't have known from just the taste.

All in all, we enjoyed most of the food. We were expecting a stronger Cheetos flavor in the dishes, but on second thought, we were impressed that the food still tasted good, despite being prepared with such an unusual ingredient.

Even the hand wipes were Cheetos branded.
