Netflix's pop-up restaurant in Los Angeles officially opened Friday, offering unique grub crafted by celebrity chefs.

The restaurant, which is called Netflix Bites, welcomed its first customers in the La Brea neighborhood of LA. The streaming giant hosted a Netflix-themed launch party Tuesday.

Chef Curtis Stone, who was featured on "Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend", said that he was "wildly excited" about the restaurant he took part in.

"Bringing my love of food to people across the world is one of the biggest thrills of my life but this screen-to-table experience of giving fans a taste of what happens on camera is just awesome," Stone said in a statement.

Netflix's Vice President of Consumer Products Josh Simon said that the pop-up is an opportunity for fans to "immerse themselves" in the company's food shows.

"We are excited to collaborate with these incredible chefs who will bring this vision to life and showcase an array of their delicious menus," Simon explained.

The restaurant is only operating for a limited time, and offers food and drinks between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. all week. On the weekends, the pop-up runs brunch service between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
