Wolfnights is 3 Weeks from Opening at 99 Rivington

Posted on: September 28th, 2011 at 6:41 am by

Much like its shapeshifting namesake of myth (Alcide?), 99 Rivington Street will most assuredly morph into Wolfnights during the next full moon cycle. Translation – roughly three weeks from now.  That much was revealed to us yesterday evening by persistent owner Itai Afek, who is now on his second culinary project at the same address months after a fire ravaged Three Monkeys.

Frequent peeks through the plywood boards onsite signal that activity here at the corner of Ludlow Street has been brisk since the end of August.  At the time, all semblance of the former restaurant was pried from the building, including the kitschy Three Monkeys sign which was deposed and replaced with a fresh new marquee.

Fast forward to current day.  The entire storefront has been refaced with sectional windows and colonial rock-wall siding.  By mid-October, patrons can expect to wolf down “gourmet wraps” at Wolfnights alongside a helping of wine and beer.  Moreover, we are told that ingredients will be completely natural and organic (i.e. beef sans hormones).
