BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston residents in the North End had mixed reactions to the news that one of the most popular brands of wet cat food has opened a limited-time trattoria in New York City, with dishes inspired by its feline-focused product.

"Gatto Bianco by Fancy Feast," is an Italian-style restaurant that offers meals to humans, drawing from both "Fancy Feast Medleys" recipes and traditional Italian cuisine, Purina announced in a statement. According to the restaurant's OpenTable page, the menu offers main dishes that center around bass, salmon, and beef, with the description of one item "Esplorazione Culinaria," reading a "culinary exploration for cat lovers."

WBZ's Matt Shearer went to one of Boston's most notable neighborhoods for Italian cuisine, and asked the people there what they thought on the Big Apple's culinary cat communion.

"Cat food is edible? That's weird. I'd give it a try, I think," said Olivia from Andover. Olivia followed her statement with a "meow."

Owner of Ristorante Villa Francesca Tomas Salmeron said the cat food-inspired wasn't within the restaurant's goals, and that he wouldn't be serving a similar dish any time soon.

"Cat food? No!" Salmeron said. Others were a bit more open minded, like a tourist named Scott from Charlotte, North Carolina, though he declined Matt's offer to try it out themselves.

"That sounds amazing! But my Uber's going to be here in five minutes— how convenient," Scott said.

Limited reservations are available for Gatto Bianco starting on August 4.
