Fresh City Wraps

The wrap is one of the most innovative products of the healthy-fast-food revolution. Stuff a tortilla with Peking duck? No problem. The great selling point of wraps is that any dish can be turned into a portable, tightly wrapped sandwich.

Fresh City Wraps, which recently opened a large and colorful eatery in Coolidge Corner, serves wraps stuffed with a wide array of ingredients. The 13 hot wraps ($4.59 to $6.29) include the piquant vegetable teriyaki (a spinach tortilla with marinated veggies and sesame noodles), the flaming-hot "Tijuana" (a chili-pepper tortilla with chili, rice, tomatoes, avocado, cheddar, and chipotle salsa), and the smooth, spicy "Lonestar Barbecue" (a tomato tortilla with grilled chicken, veggies, potatoes, and barbecue sauce). Salad wraps ($3.79 to $4.99) are equally diverse; try the "Feta Compli" (a pita stuffed with spinach, feta, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, onions, and caesar dressing) or the "Hey, Pilgrim!" (filled with turkey, cranberry sauce, spinach, and bread stuffing). There are even breakfast wraps ($2.99 to $3.49), served daily until 10 a.m.

Fresh City Wraps, located at 1335 Beacon Street, in Brookline, is open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Call 566-9727.
