The Best Wrap In NYC

How many times have you eaten a wrap? Too many to count? Typically, what’s in them? Turkey & Swiss? Tuna Salad? Roast Beef? BORING!!!! On a recent stroll through the Lower Eastside and feeling famished, I stumbled upon a spot that is taking wraps to the next level.

Wolfnights Gourmet Wraps is making wraps, but with the volume turned up. The creative names on the menu are enough to make you curious. Brother’s Grimm, Teen Wolf, Little Red Riding? But if that isn’t enough, they don’t use no ordinary wraps. They use fig, chestnut, pumpkin and pomegranate…to name a few. Oh Toto…we’re not in Kansas anymore.

After much deliberation and suggestions from behind the counter. I decide to go with the Pink Moon. What is a Pink Moon you ask? Sit back and get ready to be taken for a ride.

Pink Moon is Grilled Shrimp in a Beet & Chia Seed Wrap with Bean Sprout Slaw, Grilled Asparagus, Pickled Jalapeno, Fried Pickles and dressed in a Vanilla Coconut Sauce. One word…HEAVENLY. You get sweetness from the shrimp, heat from the jalapeno, tang from the pickles, crunch from the slaw and creaminess from the sauce. It’s the most unique, creative and delicious wrap I’ve ever eaten.

Let me tell you about the presentation. If you dine in, your wrap is presented to you on a paddle cutting board. But the cherry on the sundae is grabbing a seat in their chair swing at the window. It will bring you back to your childhood days in the playground.

I’ve been back a few times since and each time say that I’m going to try something else, but I keep going back to the Pink Moon.

How much was my gourmet wrap you ask?  $8. PRICELESS.


Happiness. $25 and under.
