In 2011, founder Itai Afek opened Wolfnights when he noticed a gap in NYC’s late-night food offerings. Wolfnights was based on combining Mediterranean and Thai Cuisine in unique wraps. The gourmet wraps start as colorful rows of portioned, raw, flavored dough in a refrigerated case. When you order, the dough is pressed and then grilled on a huge iron dome with flames licking up its sides right before your eyes.
The iron dome is called the IronWolf and is modeled after a traditional method of cooking flat bread used by native people in the Mediterranean region. Using the idea of dynamic contrast, the Ideal Bite was born. The ingredients are placed into your wrap in such a way that each bite is ideal and contains: sweet, salty, crunchy, savory, and chewy. Wolfnights serves up healthy and not-so-healthy options, hitting all of your craving needs!
The atmosphere is an inviting, comfortable, cool, urban setting with black porch swing seating at some tables. Wolfnights has been named “Best Wrap in NYC” every year since 2013; the wraps are humongous and unforgettable. This emerging brand is poised for an explosive expansion.
Don’t Fear the Wolf, Join the Pack… while the hottest territories are available.

“The wraps are flavored naturally with spices like turmeric, and beet juice which adds an extra aromatic depth to the experience. Then I couldn’t have been more pleased that every bite was uniform. Overall 10/10. I cannot wait to go back!”
