A Cheetos’ restaurant in New York City is open for three days, but it may be impossible to get a table at The Spotted Cheetah.

The pop-up restaurant sold out its 300 reserved slots before opening Tuesday and has a 1,000-person waitlist, according to Business Insider, making it tricky for those who have not booked their spot to indulge in the Cheetos-inspired cuisine.

The Spotted Cheetah, which ends Thursday, has proven to be a classy affair, drawing foodies as well as a few celebrities and socialites out to sample the cheesy delicacies.

Guests include Mariah Carey and male model River Viiperi, according to the New York Post.

"Definitely not in my diet, but I had to try it," Viiperi quipped to the Post.

Guests were treated to an innovative menu created by celebrity chef Anne Burrell, who served up dishes such as Cheetos meatballs, spicy Cheetos nachos and tacos, Cheetos crusted cheesecake and even Cheetos sweet and salty biscuits.

Posting on Facebook about the experience, local radio and television personality and best-selling author, La La Anthony, said she loved the meals.

Speaking about how she came up with the menu, Burrell told The Associated Press, "I worked hard to incorporate Cheetos into every dish and not just say, 'Oh here's a dish with a sprinkle of Cheetos on top.'"

She added that "I really tried to think about the flavor of each Cheeto and what would pair really well with it."

Fortunately, those who can't attend the pop-up restaurant can still experience some of the cheesy dishes by sampling foods from the cookbook, which was made available on The Spotted Cheetah website.
