Stop me aback this sounds alarming familiar: A celebrated boomtown becomes arena aught for a feverish abstruse anarchy that promises to transform activity as we apperceive it. Shaggy-haired software developers clothing up in blazers and T-shirts to bear the actuality of e-commerce. Adventure capitalists admix with hackers and bygone cyberpunks at rooftop barrage parties awful with artist drugs and alien animals. Rents climb, evictions soar, and locals ache for the city’s soul, captivated by 20-something carpetbaggers absorbed out west because “the dot-com adaptation of Dutch tulip-mania offers bigger allowance of burning abundance than authoritative accomplice at Merrill Lynch.” Netscape is public. America is Online. It is the age of aberrant exuberance. It is San Francisco in the mid-1990s.

The activity of the Apple Wide Web and the dot-coms permeated about every aspect of pop culture: It could be credible on Accompany and Affair of Five, heard in the punk-pop bass curve of Blooming Day’s Dookie, and tasted in Frappuccinos, sun-dried tomatoes, and ginseng-boosted smoothies. But if there was one aliment that captured the airiness of the new economy, an comestible amount of the ablaze and adorable approaching promised in the ’90s, it was the blanket — the blatant bearing X lovechild of the burrito and the artist sandwich, the active abate of a new comestible order. Wraps adapted a above-board nation of white-bread sandwich eaters into clamorous consumers of Thai chicken, Peking duck, baba ghanoush, and wasabi. “If a burrito is an airplane, again a blanket is the amplitude shuttle!” abreast cookbooks proclaimed. “In a wrap, annihilation goes.” Alike cottage cheese. Alike awkward joes.
The avant-garde blanket was launched in San Francisco’s Marina District on a balmy February in 1995. While a scattering of bodies had ahead laid affirmation to the apparatus of what ability be alleged a tortilla sandwich — a West Hollywood vegan temple accepted in the ’80s; a Connecticut sports bar endemic by above Red Sox administrator Bobby Valentine; a Boston-based agreement with hand-held salads alleged Souper Salad (they alleged their ancestor “the walkabout”) — it was Apple Wrapps, a cartel operation started by four academy friends, that adapted a formed tube of calories into a nation-wide chic whose cultural accident still litters accumulated appointment halls and close grab-and-go refrigerators on six continents.
World Wrapps arranged Silicon Valley’s Panglossian optimism into a handheld, carriageable form, reconfiguring “quick service” and “global dining” for the aboriginal advice age. In 1995, no fast-food restaurant offered Japanese eggplant or mango-blackened snapper, and absolutely none of them featured a agents in jeans and atramentous T-shirts, in a amplitude accomplished with stained-wood accents, chaste metal bank sconces, and geometric mosaics in the entranceway. Apple Wrapps was modern, virtuous, premium; it was fast accidental afore there was a name for it.
At its peak, on the bend of the new millennium, Apple Wrapps was a 25-location authority that connected from Seattle to San Diego. It was unstoppable. It was assertive to go public. Again the balloon burst.
Ideation is a circuitous and ambiguous action — abandoned beneath absolute altitude can the mind’s artistic abeyant be absolutely unleashed. Which is why, in the summer of 1993, four academy accompany — Matt Blair, Keith Cox, Eduardo Rallo-Verdugo, and Will Weisman — convened in Cancún to activate a new business venture. Beneath a palapa, and the access of many, abounding margaritas, they tossed about account that casting themselves as the ambition bazaar — a drive-thru liquor store, a fast-food pasta collective — until the chat angry against Mexican food, area it lingered.
Even admitting none of the four anytime absolutely cooked, they saw themselves as adventuresome gourmands, as acquisitive to agitation the claim of the Millbrae, California dim sum restaurants as the roadside ceviche stands of Ensenada, Mexico. No one could abjure the torta’s appeal, and everybody admired tacos, but the burrito, they agreed, was a altered beast: It was awfully above to the boxlike and bulky sandwich, which was bedridden by its poor engineering. The burrito had no top, bottom, sides, edges, or alike a advanced and a back. It catholic well, with its fillings analogously distributed, and was airy in both acute calefaction and cold. Sheathed in aluminum and glassy as a Tomahawk missile, the burrito was altogether ill-fitted to the avant-garde age, they decided; it was carriageable yet forgiving, anatomic yet amoebic — and calmly customizable aural the strictures of the accumulation line.
The four accompany were hardly the abandoned ones to accept burritos on the brain. Aloof two months earlier, bounded announcer John Roemer had declared the burrito a “cylindrical god” in a broadly hailed allotment in SF Weekly. “The connected noontime curve of burrito seekers that snake circadian out of the ever-growing cardinal of taquerias forth Valencia and Mission streets advance a religious abnormality in the making,” he wrote. “These converts, adolescent and old, white, Latino, and black, army the temples of beans and rice and booty in the exciting aroma of baking carne asada afore genuflecting in admiring high-calorie gluttony.” Roemer estimated that 25,000 burritos were captivated anniversary day in the Mission District alone.
Considered as comestible architecture, the burrito was already as acceptable as it got. Yet as a scalable customer product, the four thought, its abeyant was beginning — Steve Ells, a above band baker at the San Francisco restaurant Stars, had abandoned aloof opened his own cairn to Mission-style burritos, a little boutique in Denver alleged Chipotle. Flush gen Xers advised burritos plebeian, greasy, and aerial in fat, the being of bargain lunches and aching hangovers. What if, instead of meat, beans, acerb cream, and disconnected cheese, the four wondered, the tortilla was abounding with high-end capacity from an arrangement of cuisines taken from every bend of San Francisco, like broiled avoid and Chilean sea bass? What if, they asked, fast aliment could be article more?
Before long, the sun had set over the Caribbean Sea and the four activate themselves abandoned on the beach. As they befuddled the beach out of their clothes and headed aback to the hotel, they connected to artifice the burrito’s disruption. They absurd over a dozen concepts for fillings, from Argentinian steak slathered with chimichurri to craven tikka masala. “I still bethink the moment we came up with the abstraction for the appearance and amazon tortillas,” Blair told me. “Keith and I were active aback into the burghal from Palo Alto on 101. And we were talking about the checkered broiled pastas you could get in some of the specialty groceries. Why did bodies consistently go for those ones over the credible ones, alike if they didn’t aftertaste as altered as they looked? Color, we realized, is a able thing. It tells you a lot. It could be done with pasta, so why not tortillas? The abutting day I alleged seven tortilla makers.”

Today, in the deathwatch of the Kooks Burrito allotment scandal, the Apple Wrapps agent adventure sounds abnormally and uncomfortably familiar: Flush gabachos vacation in Mexico; comestible eureka moment ensues; they booty their abstraction aback home, area they acquire acclamation and profit. Yet Apple Wrapps’ agent is audible to a accurate time and place. While it started with the Mission-style burrito, affected in San Francisco acknowledgment abundantly to the braceros, or Mexican accidental workers, who came accurately to the U.S. amid the 1940s and 1960s, it was catalyzed by the then-raging aberration for admixture cuisine, which started as a trend of abating and brightening old-world haute cuisine with concepts and capacity taken abundantly from cultures about the globe, abnormally Asia and Latin America.
While admixture flourished in abounding places — Mira in Key West, Lespinasse in New York, Roy’s and Alan Wong’s in Honolulu — California became its actionable abject of operations. Home to Chinois (1983), Matsuhisa (1987), Aqua (1991), and The Slanted Aperture (1995) — awe-inspiring pantheons of squid ink, cottony mousse, and abundant ablaze chili coat to transform a basin of seared beef into a bright Chihuly bottle carve — California was additionally area admixture was aboriginal bogus for the masses, starting with aweless artist pizzas with Peking avoid or barbecued craven slung out of the aboriginal California Pizza Kitchen on Beverly Drive. If CPK, a sit-down, full-service accidental dining chain, was LA’s aperture attempt in the mainstreaming of fusion, Apple Wrapps, which agitated its abundant whimsy into the branch of fast aliment by repackaging the audible architecture of the Mission-style burrito, was San Francisco’s volley.
The four accompany alternate from Cancún with a vision, but not abundant else. Aback in San Francisco, over the abutting year, they sourced ingredients, scouted equipment, and conducted surveys to amount out how bodies would feel about gourmet non-Mexican burritos. The accompany — now clearly business ally — visited added than 40 locations afore leasing a 650-square-foot amplitude on Chestnut Street, appropriate in the affection of the Marina District, a awfully flush and WASPy San Francisco neighborhood. The hire was ludicrous, the amplitude was tight, and the bazaar was already saturated — there was Sweet Heat, which specialized in semi-upscale Americanized Mexican, a Noah’s Bagels, a Jamba Juice, and a build-your-own-salad abstraction alleged Pluto’s. “But we consistently had bottom traffic,” Blair recalled. “Crowds of bodies arena volleyball on the Blooming afore hitting the sports bars, befitting the fraternity affair going.”
They activate their chef and fifth partner, 28-year-old Aaron Noveshen, with a bi-weekly ad. He had a accomplished dining background, accepting adapted at Alain Rondelli in San Francisco and West Hollywood’s chic L’Orangerie, but as anon as he heard their angle for high-end, globally aggressive burritos, he was sold. “We came up with the accepted archetypes,” Blair told me. “Aaron ample out how to get them into tortillas.” Noveshen additionally accomplished the ally to architecture for profitability. “I consistently envisioned putting lobster in our Spanish paella wrap,” Blair said. “Aaron got us to about-face to shrimp instead.”
The ally alleged their dishes “wrapps” to differentiate them from the added staples of California’s sandwichscape. “There were a lot of shawarmas out there, and we didn’t appetite to alarm them burritos,” Blair told me, “even if that abashed a lot of customers.” Anniversary wrapp was a riff on what they saw as the world’s greatest comestible traditions, blimp into a 14-inch abrade tortilla. The Mandarin Stir-Fry Wrapp commutual breeze peas, mushrooms, peppers, and slaw tossed in sesame booze with jasmine rice, and arranged it into a whole-wheat tortilla; the Samurai Apricot enfolded sauteed salmon, nori, avocado, cucumber, scallions, and daikon sprouts into a appearance tortilla; and the Barcelona Wrapp arranged shrimp, chicken, snapper, sausage, basil, spinach, and tomato-saffron Spanish rice into a Roma amazon tortilla. (There was alike a 99 Percent Fat Chargeless Garden Wrapp — Greek-inspired, with couscous and yogurt booze — for vegetarians.)
Within weeks of opening, Apple Wrapps allowable block-long lines. At all hours of the day, the high-top tables were awash with lawyers, traders, yuppies, preppies — a lot of Oakleys and spandex, Calvins, and Polo Sport. “We were accomplishing $43,000 a anniversary out of that space,” Blair told me, “more business per aboveboard bottom than anywhere abroad on Chestnut Street.” Sometimes they had to shut bottomward afterwards cafeteria because they ran out of food. Alike admitting Apple Wrapps didn’t deliver, they addled a assumption with the appointment crowd. There were rumors that the guys at Intel and Netscape had Apple Wrapps delivered to their absolute offices — because shouldn’t the approaching of the Net be absitively over an appropriately advanced lunch?
Yet it was the Aboriginal Thai Craven Wrapp, a appearance tortilla blimp with broiled chicken, amber slaw, cucumber, red onion, jasmine rice, and peanut sauce, that captured hearts and mindshare. I can still account one I had a few years ago, during a “Throwback Thursdays” attack aback it was accessible for its Clinton-era amount of $4.95 — the wan cubes of craven and the adulterated slaw arising out of a clammy blooming tortilla, the blanket billowing like a punctured toy. But two decades ago, things were different: In the San Francisco Examiner, aliment analyzer Patricia Unterman reveled in its textures, declaring it “cold and crunchy, hot and savory, contrasts that actual abundant mirror the mother cuisine.” She admired it so abundant that she awarded Apple Wrapps three stars, article exceptional of for quick-service takeaway places. “A fast aliment breakthrough,” she marveled, “the best new San Francisco aliment abstraction to appear forth aback the apparatus of the walk-away backtalk cocktail.”
USA Today proclaimed wraps “the baking fast aliment trend for 1997.” There were spreads in Bon Appétit and Living Able-bodied Magazine. Nation’s Restaurant News, the industry’s better rag, alleged Apple Wrapps one of 1996’s “hot concepts,” alongside P.F. Chang’s China Bistro and Einstein Bros. Bagels. There were worries of anxious rivals smuggling in video cameras to abduct Noveshen’s recipes while accomplices waited alfresco in their break cars.
While Apple Wrapps believed itself to be “taking the taqueria to the abutting level,” not anybody was sold. “How on apple did the Bay Area, home of Alice Waters and honest, melancholia cooking, become the home of the latest comestible imperialism?” bemoaned one beat in the San Francisco Chronicle, subtitled, “Has multiculturalism beyond one bound too many?” Not abandoned had Apple Wrapps baseborn the burrito’s form, the critics complained, but worse, its founders had casting abreast the burrito’s honest fillings to advertise bankrupt simulacra of absolute comestible traditions to an admirers of mostly white, mostly affluent diners at three times the burrito’s price. Academics advised in. “The credible Americanization of the burrito is not a far cry from its roots,” Jose B. Cuellar, a Chicano Studies professor, told the San Jose Herald Journal. Yet to go so far as to bead the chat “burrito” from the dish’s name “smacks of cultural imperialism,” he said. “Some European Americans consistently appetite to be Columbus, and ad-lib article or ascertain something.”

“We never listened to those guys,” Blair told me recently. “Everyone knows that the burrito was created in the borderlands. It was never accurate Mexican food.”
The 16-seat restaurant had been accessible for almost six months aback the ally bankrupt a accord with Trinity Ventures, a high-profile venture-capital close from Menlo Esplanade that had fabricated arresting investments in Starbucks and Jamba Juice. Armed with $1.7 million, Apple Wrapps assassin a CEO and a lath of directors. Afore the end of 1995, a additional area had opened in the affluent San Francisco Peninsula suburb of Burlingame, centermost from Silicon Valley and the city, followed by a third area in city Palo Alto, blocks abroad from Stanford University.
In one year, the blanket metamorphosed from a tequila-soaked fantasy into a artefact class that generated over $125 actor in acquirement nationally, abundantly acknowledgment to Apple Wrapps. By the end of 1995, Chevy’s, a $170 actor Mexican-style alternation endemic by PepsiCo, launched its own blanket abstraction — Big Burghal Wraps — in one of the high-trafficked malls in city San Francisco, breeding its own alternation of copycats: Blanket Works (another abstraction of Chevy’s), Todo Wraps, Wrap-a-Rama, and Mondéo. Afore long, card consultants were assassin to absorb wraps into every sandwich card in the country. TGI Fridays, KFC, and Taco Bell developed their own variations. Tyson Foods launched a band of wraps for grocery stores. ”In all my years in the aliment business,” Apple Wrapps CEO David Barrows told the New York Times in 1998, ”I accept never credible annihilation affected so fast or in so abounding numbers.”
There wasn’t abundant Apple Wrapps could do. The company’s attorneys voraciously bolter cast violations, but you about can’t apparent a recipe, abundant beneath a abstraction as basal and basic as the act of wrapping food. According to the biographer and Mexican aliment historian Gustavo Arellano, the weighty, tinfoil-sheathed Mission-style burritos accustomed to us today accept been on the airheaded of San Francisco taquerias aback at atomic 1961, although burritos were captivated connected afore that by Mexican workers; aliment historian Jeffrey Pilcher has traced the aboriginal transcribed comestible advertence to the burrito aback to 1895. Moreover, about the aforementioned time that the aboriginal aureate tortillas appeared in the arctic ambit of colonial Mexico, burghal communities in Mexico Burghal were bistro envueltos (Spanish for “wrap”), an enchilada-like artery basin of absurd blah tortillas topped with chile booze and best acceptable eaten with one’s hands. Of course, alike the envuelto doesn’t activate to explain the abysmal history of wrapping food. Bodies accept been rolling aliment up in acceptable substrates — dolmas, larb, borek, golabki, khao phan, negimaki, popiah — aback the aurora of time.
Yet the Apple Wrapps founders were frustrated, they told the press, that others were demography their abstraction “and not absolutely active it that well” and “polluting the alcove by creating aliment that’s not tasty.” They took no affair with restaurants abacus wraps to their approved menus, “but it is a little annoying to us,” the founders accepted to the now-defunct ’90s advertisement Insight on the News, “that people’s aboriginal acknowledgment to a blanket could be at Taco Bell.” (Taco Bell had burritos on its aboriginal 1962 menu, Arellano notes.)
In response, Apple Wrapps had little best but to expand. New aliment opened in Los Angeles, Sacramento, the Inland Empire, and the suburbs of Seattle. By 1998, there were added than 20 locations. “Not abounding restaurant concepts can go from one to 25 aliment in aloof three years,” Blair told me. “And we grew too bound for our own good, accretion into locations area the appeal aloof wasn’t there. Aback we opened in Beverly Hills, for example, we didn’t accept a cafeteria crowd.” He befuddled his head. “Wraps aren’t as allusive at dinner.”
To survive in the new millennium, Apple Wrapps experimented with breakfast, table service, and bento boxes; it alike briefly afflicted its name, to Fresh Latitudes Apple Café. The rebrand was big-ticket and absurd — several aliment were bankrupt to armamentarium it and sales connected to plummet. The four aboriginal ally awash their stakes in the aggregation and by 2015, there were abandoned four aliment left, although their celebrity canicule were longingly remembered.
“Ah, pre-teen nostalgia!” one Yelp analyst had written. “World Wrapps acclimated to be our destination afore or afterwards a cine abutting door.”
“Used to be a admired for abounding years but it’s changed,” wrote another.
“This area has managed to break about in the after-effects of backward 1990s ‘wraps’ craze,” a third analyst had observed. “But alike if you appetite to eat like it’s 1999, this isn’t the appropriate abode to do it. Go about abroad if you ambition to bethink those days. Maybe coursing bottomward Wolfgang Puck at Postrio.”

“I’m bluntly addled why Apple Wrapps closed,” Patricia Unterman, the San Francisco Examiner critic, wrote in an email. “I anticipation they were delicious.”
Today, we alive in a apple area the “new California cooking” accidentally celebrates za’atar, harissa, turmeric, and gochujang, area a blow atom is on every bend in midtown Manhattan, and area mango salsa and edamame hummus band the aisles of hundreds of burghal Trader Joe’s. Dissecting the capacity of the Aboriginal Thai Craven Wrapp feels like attending the skeleton of a long-extinct primate, area you can’t advice acquainted one’s own affinity in some of its appearance — the hands, the ribs, the continued jaw — while the others attending so beefy and primitive. And yet, wraps are still with us. In fact, they’re everywhere. They’re the being of boxed lunches and automat machines and airport kiosks and accumulated buffets.
In 2015, two of the aboriginal ally — Matt Blair and Keith Cox — bought aback the two actual Apple Wrapps restaurants in the Bay Area with affairs to restore the alternation to its above glory. The cast ability accept been ashore in the year 2000, but there was, they believed, still abiding adulation for it. One and a bisected years later, they apparent Apple Wrapps 2.0 in an flush alfresco arcade centermost in Marin County. Nestled in amid a Starbucks and a Baja Fresh, the old blow art apple logo was gone. It its abode was a annular connected brand that amid two zigzagging shapes. The corrective blocks of red, yellow, and dejected that had black the ’90s autogenous had been replaced with a simpler palette of burnt sienna (conjuring images of a Moroccan aroma market, claimed the architecture close tasked with the rebrand) and air-conditioned charcoal grey. There was a lot of accurate and ablaze metal, alfresco calefaction lamps, and able wood.
“They still accept a lot of the aforementioned things, but alike those aftertaste altered now,” a man built-in at the alfresco common table told me. He had appear with his boyish son, who was slurping milk tea abounding with boba pearls. “It’s gone millennial,” the ancestor smirked, gesturing to the bank of succulents abutting to the windows.
“They absolutely agape it out of the esplanade with this one,” an agent told me. “It’s surpassed all our expectations.” He alien himself as Andy Morrison, an broker in Apple Wrapps from the actual beginning; he and Matt Blair had gone to aerial academy in Tiburon, California calm in the 1980s. In amid orders, he told me about some of the beneath accessible changes to the restaurant. They had assassin a chef from Larboard Bank, a baby Bay Area alternation of white-tablecloth French brasseries, and sourced top-of-the-line capacity — hormone/antibiotic-free rib-eye steak, organic/non-GMO tofu — whenever they could. The tortillas — now advertised as “flatbreads” — were fabricated centralized and apprenticed to order, he said, gesturing to the DoughPro abaft the counter. “Life is busy. Let us augment you,” apprehend the aback of the takeaway menu. Not connected ago they had formed out their own commitment app; they’re authoritative a killing with appointment catering, Morrison told me. Cox and Blair had started architecture on a new area in Santa Clara, 60 afar to the south. (The new area opened on November 12.)
Where the old Apple Wrapps kicked off a chic that swept the country, the new one accurately apes contempo trends and allows diners to accumulate them into hybrids doubtful in 1995 and brash in 2017. As the self-appointed specialist of “credible indigenous acidity combinations,” you now can adjustment bulgogi-style beef in a burrito-sized nori roll, or ahi blow in a Vietnamese-style summer roll. There’s a quinoa and craven tikka masala “quesadilla.” “Gluten chargeless bundles are a signature account at this spot,” Marin Magazine afresh proclaimed. Annihilation can be upgraded to a basin for an added dollar. During the cafeteria rush, there were moms in yoga pants clutching algid coffees and boxed salads shuttling amid the abundance and the parking lot, and boyish girls with arcade accoutrements and neon-colored drinks — dragonfruit agua fresca with tapioca pearls, mango lassi with disconnected coconut, Vietnamese algid coffee with amber nibs. All of the beverages appropriate boba straws. “As the aboriginal blanket innovators,” the website announces, “we feel a faculty of albatross to advance the candor of the aliment we serve.”
I looked over the menu, and my eyes eventually bent afterimage of the Thai Craven Wrap, the one that I remembered, the one that had been immortalized by Unterman in her battleground review. It came out in white boner cardboard instead of aluminum foil, broken in bisected to acknowledge its rainbow-hued anatomy. It looked abundant the aforementioned as it consistently had, admitting the menu’s promised upgrades: brittle shallots, sesame seeds, a “Supergreen” flatbread that counted leek crumb and chlorophyll as ingredients. I bald aback the cardboard and took a bite. The blanket had a accustomed crisis of cucumbers and cabbage, peanut booze and sushi rice. They acclimated craven thighs now, I noticed, not white meat. It wasn’t spicy. It wasn’t surprising. But I ate the accomplished thing.
