Wolfnights Just Expanded its Dining Room Space on Rivington Street

Conceived more as a cramped takeout joint, Wolfnights is now stretching its proverbial legs. Indeed, the fast-casual wrap aficionados headquartered at 99 Rivington Street just expanded into the space directly next door. As expected.

The new legroom – three high-top tables with stool seating – ultimately comes at the expense of the long-running Felix Tailor shop, which was forced to move to Allen Street before the new year. Build-out commenced shortly thereafter, and wrapped earlier this month. The adjacent store was easily incorporated into the overall exterior design, creating a fairly seamless continuity. As though it was this way from the start.

As of this weekend, you can now sit next door.

What’s interesting, though, is that there are no permits on file with the Department of Buildings for this now-completed expansion job.

And in other Wolfnights news, the snack shop is looking to expand. Ownership is currently polling customers to gauge interest in other neighborhoods (e.g. West Village, Murray Hill).
