Venue says Visit us late night for delicious wraps open till 2am Mon-Wed, Thurs till 4am, Friday-Sat till 5am and Sun to 2am!

At first glance, Wolfnights on the Lower East Side looks more like a late-night grub shop than a fine-dining establishment, but don’t let that deter you. The quick and efficient service at this gourmet wrap shop is definitely preferable to the 45-minute wait you’ll find at nearby eateries.

On to those wraps: the Beast ($10) is a delectable combination of grilled steak, crunchy BBQ bits, blue cheese, marinated green olives, cilantro and red chili mayonnaise wrapped in turmeric flatbread. The wrap itself is spicy enough to wake up your tastebuds, but not too intense. The steak arrives well done and chewy in consistency, but the flavor is appealing enough for you to take multiple bites anyway. If you’re craving seafood, try the Pink Moon ($10). A beet-chia dough gives the wrap its signature pink hue, and it's filled with grilled shrimp, bean sprout slaw, grilled asparagus, pickled jalapeño, fried pickles and coconut-vanilla sauce. It's just as spicy as the Beast, but the limited number of shrimp is slightly disappointing. Still, it's tasty, even more so when paired with a serving of sweet potato fries ($5) or the Wolf Attack ($7), an overloaded tater tot number made of sloppy joe mix, grilled onions, melted cheddar and jalapeños. Savory and full of kick, the Wolf Attack is hearty enough to act as a late night meal for those in the mood for spuds.

For dessert, try the chocolate-basil milkshake ($6) or the Wolfie dessert wrap ($6). Both desserts carry a lightness that the entrées severely lack. The fragrant milkshake, made with chocolate ice cream, cinnamon, basil and banana, makes for a surprisingly fruity drink you can’t find anywhere else. The Wolfie is a similarly unusual combination of walnut-maple balls wrapped in a Nutella dough and topped with fresh strawberries, sesame butter, vanilla cream and coconut flakes. Be forewarned: Both sweets could become addicting. Wolfnights might not become an everyday habit, but when you're craving a toasty wrap, it's worth heading downtown.

Well, how many of you can relate to this: It’s the mid­dle of the night and you’re work­ing late or study­ing, (or par­ty­ing the night away) and sud­denly you’re STARV­ING! You want some­thing that you can wolf down but you’re sick of greasy fast food and bor­ing fla­vor com­bi­na­tions. That’s how the idea for Wolfnights® was born.


We will fill your mid­day or mid­night crav­ing with our explo­sions of fla­vor: savory, sweet, fresh, crunchy, spicy. We cre­ate the ideal bal­ance of these fla­vors to make sure you get the per­fect bite every time with­out that guilt you feel after eat­ing grease filled fast food. We hand make every­thing from scratch, includ­ing each one of our sig­na­ture sauces, meat­balls, pick­led fruit and our wrap dough, which is pressed and baked to order in front of your eyes on our blaz­ing Iron­Wolf™, and you can sub­sti­tute our sig­na­ture wraps for whole wheat if you want that extra bit of fiber.


So, if you’re look­ing for gourmet wraps at the speed and cost of a fast food joint, you found the right place.

I have lived around the block from this place for almost 3 years now, and somehow never gave it a try. I'm not a big wraps person, so the idea of a place that sold wraps and wraps only wasn't interesting to me. However, after watching rivers of people come in and out at all hours of the day for so long, I had to bite the bullet and give it a shot.


Well, that was about two months ago, and I've been obsessed ever since having it once-twice a week. Their combinations are super tasty and fresh, no matter what you order you can tell you are eating real food. My favorite wrap is the teen wolf - falafel with pickle red onions, pickels, and sesame sauce on a fig dough (what!! add some feta as well and thank me later). They also have banging brussel sprouts and a yummy beets and goat cheese salad. People rave about their tater tots and fries but I have yet to try them.


Solid, affordable, good food. Open late. What's not to like!
