A food truck that’s made a name for itself slinging vegetarian-friendly wraps and curries on the streets of Cambridge will now settle into a permanent home in Packard’s Corner. Rhythm ‘n Wraps has secured a space at 1096 Commonwealth Ave., Boston — the former home of Cookin’ Cafe & Grill — and it will expand its operations there soon.

The restaurant will seat 31, with dining on the first floor and storage in the basement, according to a City of Boston licensing document. Rhythm ‘n Wraps first started in 2013, and the food truck regularly rotates through three locations near Harvard University, Alewife, and Kendall Square. The menu includes a variety of wraps and platters, including smoked tempeh bacon wraps, curried lentil plates, tacos made with crispy fried tofu and kimchi, and smoked vegan sausage wraps.

Rhythm ‘n Wraps emphasizes “the value of healthy eating and the connection between our food, our medicine, and our health,” per the website. When the restaurant opens, it will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with service until 1 a.m. It will continue truck operations and full-service catering, per owner Aaron Cohen (note: not the same Aaron Cohen who owns Gracie’s Ice Cream in Somerville). There will be an expanded menu at the restaurant, Cohen said, giving Rhythm ‘n Wraps a “chance to really display what we can do.”

Update, July 3, 2018: The restaurant held its grand opening on May 11, 2018.
