Dolce Wraps Bringing Mediterranean Food to Avon Commons

Hummus, tabouli, felafel and meat dishes on the menu.

Dolce Wraps, which serves Mediterranean-based food, will be opening in Avon Commons, owner Farah Lahham said this week.

“We’re hoping to open in the next four weeks, but we’ll see,” he said. The eatery, which will seat 40 indoors, is going in to the space formerly occupied by Hot Dog Heaven.

Lahham founded Dolce Wraps, which also operates a location in Fairview Park.

“The name includes “wraps,” but we’ll also serve other Middle Eastern items such as hummus, tabouli, felafel and salads,” Lahham said.

Lahham said food would be made to order including sautéed fresh vegetables with chicken or steak and a choice of sauce. Ordering will be done at the counter and immediately prepared. Dolce Wraps will also offer a selection of vegan items.

“This is real steak, like shawarma,” he said. Meat will be prepared on a rotisserie and shaved fresh.

“Everything is cooked fresh on a daily basis. We don’t deal with frozen food, with the exception of pita that will turn into pita chips."

The Jerusalem-born Lahham is not a stranger to Mediterranean food. His family founded the Aladdin eateries. Lahham is no longer invested in the establishment but was responsible for food selection when he was.

“The food is priced really well,” he added. "The most expensive item on the menu is  $5.95. And everything is fresh; it will speak for itself.”

Patrons can expect their meals to be quickly prepared, also.

“I call it the new generational fast food,” Lahham said. 

He plans on having outdoor seating available, weather permitting, similar to . The new location will employ approximately 10.

I am crazy excited that Dolce Wraps is coming here! We make the drive from Avon Lake to the Fairview Park location many times a week. It is THAT good! The flavors are incredible, the staff is polite and clean and professional, and most of all, REALLY good at their skills! We have tried almost everything on the menu (which is vast) and always take our family, guests and friends there to devour their delicious food. The owner is very present, and remembers people that revisit his establishment. It is my FAVORITE eatery anywhere. I am so glad to have them open a restaurant closer to us. We will absolutely see you there! Don't let the name fool you, they have just about everything. My favorite is the Sicilian Eggplant - wrapped or unwrapped. My husband always gets something new and we've never been disappointed. It is an AMAZING taste treat! You will be SO glad you tried it! I would give the whole experience a 6 Star rating (they get one extra for opening closer to us!!) WELCOME to Lorain Co.!! Kelli Bodey

Kelli, I'm a big fan of that kind of food and am pretty excited too. I eat at Aladdin's in Crocker often....very vegetarian friendly.

I agree with everything Kelli said. Dolce Wraps is one of my favs. Since Ive moved I havent gotten there much, I used to go all the time. So happy it will only be a few minutes away from me again!

Oh, Kimber, you're in for a treat! Though they don't advertise party trays or anything, I asked nicely once for a 'tray' of their phenomenal Hummus and pita chips (24 hours in advance!) and took it and some Baklava to a wedding shower. Luckily I knew well enough to also take a handful of their 'To Go' menus. These sweet, demure ladies were very aggressive once they tasted the secret recipe. Not a speck, or a menu left! That is my new, easy, delicious pot-luck item! (Even if everyone starts bringing Dolce to parties, we will still be able to polish off any that is there!) Now I'M hungry!!

Oh I cannot wait! We so need this kind of food at hand. i hope they also have or ggt fava beans.
Adele July 07, 2012 at 05:19 PM
My fave dish at A's is "foole", a fava bean and garlic dish I dip pita bread in. Oh I so miss going there 2x a week when I worked by Lakewood! Crocker is not handicapped parking friendly.
