It was around 15 years ago when I first visited Novecento in Buenos Aires. Novecento has come a long way since then, having opened 11 restaurants across the globe including Miami, New York City, Punta del Este in Uruguay, Mexico, Buenos Aires & Córdoba in Argentina.

I personally think Novecento is the only Argentine restaurant who has embraced their worldly clientele. The proprietors created an Argentine-inspired menu infused with international flavors. And that’s the key to their success. Anyone who walks into any Novecento restaurant will notice the warm wooden panels and old street signs reminiscent of Buenos Aires. But as soon as they sit down and open the menu, they will feel at home.

It's as if they took the best Argentine plates, mixed them with a more Americanized concept, and delivered back a North & South American fusion cuisine.

With the farm to table trend here to stay, I was pleasantly surprised how it’s finally made its way to the new restaurant in Aventura, FL. This location features a warm, welcoming ambiance centered on a casual yet sophisticated dining room with European Bistro accents, a custom-built wine cellar, and the Malbec private dining room. They also have the exclusive chef’s tables by the new brick oven.

Novecento now serves flatbreads straight from their wood pizza oven, a new concept they recently introduced. I ordered the mushroom flatbread with truffle oil ($12), which was crispy, tasty and full of fresh ingredients. For the main course, I refrained from the traditional grilled beef cuts Argentine style and, instead, ordered the branzino (fish for $32). It melted in my mouth; it was cooked to perfection. Without use of heavy cream, the branzino was light yet flavorful. I highly recommend it.

No room for dessert here, but in my previous visits to other Novecento locations, I always order the panqueques con dulce de leche (thin crepes filled with milk caramel. It’s an old school Argentine dessert) paired with a cortadito (espresso with foamed milk Argentine style). It’s the perfect end to such a divine meal. The wine list is complete with the best that Argentina has to offer. I always start with sparkling (Chandon Rosé sparkling $16 a glass) and a Malbec when I’m ordering steak (Vistalba Corte B, Carlos Pulenta – $65 a bottle), or a Pinot Noir (Pinot Noir 7 Lagos – $9 a glass) if I’m getting pasta or fish.

Novecento is refined co-existence of Argentine, Mediterranean and Pan-Latin cuisines heightened by French techniques. They place in-depth attention to presentation and detail. Their cuisine isn’t fusion; rather each style is separate and a pure reflection of its heritage.

I am very pleased that the farm to table movement is finally catching up everywhere else besides the usual metropolitan areas. Novecento is blazing the trail in Miami.


Updated Art Basel 2018 Events Around Miami

Headlining this year is "Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago." Through Jan. 13, this is the first major survey of this size and scope of 21st century art by 67 contemporary Caribbean artists representing 14 Caribbean countries, whose works offer expansive perspectives that transcend the boundaries imposed upon Caribbean cultures. "Because of Miami's geographic proximity to the Caribbean nations, as well as our cultural mosaic which Caribbean cultures have shaped, it was important for us to bring this exhibition to Miami during Art Basel season," said Dr. Jordana Pomeroy, the Director of the museum. "Our new season opens up a dialogue about global commonalities rather than differences, from ecological changes to societal values around the world."

Midtown Miami Restaurants: Novecento

Never miss a bite! Sign up here to receive new recipes and reviews straight to your inbox.

Disclosure: I was invited to dine as a guest of the casino and restaurants. No monetary compensation has been received for this post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

If I had to choose a favorite section of Miami, it’s probably Midtown. There are so many great restaurants and things to do, and you aren’t bogged down by the craziness that comes along on the beach. During a recent weekend trip down that way, I had the opportunity to check out a restaurant I hadn’t heard of before, but now very happy to know about — Novecento. This Argentinian bistro-style restaurant was founded back in 1991 in New York, and has since expanded into South Florida with four locations in Brickell, Key Biscayne, Aventura and the latest, Midtown.

Novecento’s cuisine is a blend of Pan-Latin and Argentine flavors and the menu has a very wide variety of fare to choose from, plenty of which are easy to share with others — my favorite way to enjoy a meal! Each menu is location-specific, so keep in mind that my Midtown experience may be very different from your Brickell experience (although I’m sure it’d be just as incredible!)

Novecento selects a special red and white Wine of the Month for its guests and offers the bottles for half price on Tuesdays. For the month of November, the wines were Argento Reserva Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay from Mendoza, Argentina. The sultry Cabernet Franc was the perfect pairing for all of the delicious Argentinian-style food we’d be enjoying for the night, but before switching to red wine, I decided to give one of their signature cocktails a try. The Fragolini 900 was right up my alley — sparkling wine, St. Germain, mint, bitters infused sugar cube, and fresh strawberries. You know how much I love my bubbles and St. Germain! It was refreshingly sweet and a great way to start the evening.

The first dish to catch my eye was the ‘pulpo a la plancha,’ grilled octopus with potato confit, paprika, aioli, mache greens, and prosciutto, which, perfect for me, is placed off to the side of the plate and not mixed in with the rest of the dish. The octopus was so incredibly melt-in-your-mouth tender, yet still had that distinctive texture and char from the grill. The accompanying ingredients were well-balanced, super flavorful and all worked really well together. I’m sure the prosciutto really added a nice level of saltiness that I missed, but was still happy without!

We also ordered the ceviche con tostones, fish marinated in lime juice and jalapeños, red peppers, avocado, and red onions, served with crispy round disks of green plantains — one of my favorite things to get at a Latin restaurant. The ceviche was bright and bursting with citrus, the fish was cooked beautifully, and the heat from the jalapeños wasn’t too overpowering. Whether eaten by the forkful or loaded onto a piece of tostone, it was an absolutely delicious dish. This would be an ideal appetizer for sharing between two or three.

In an effort to keep things on the lighter side for our appetizer course, we ordered the grilled hearts of palm salad. At first glance, it sounded sort of boring. But when the plate hit the table, I took back that thought. It was gorgeous, and everything about the dish was so good I could not stop going back for more! I’ve never had grilled hearts of palm before, and I don’t think I want to eat it any other way ever again. The flavor popped and mixed very well with thinly shaved rainbow carrots, avocado wedges, cherry tomatoes and watercress. The dressing was a “salsa golf,” which we learned is basically the Argentinian version of Thousand Island…but this was much, much better than any Thousand Island I’ve ever had. Ever.

For our entree, we ordered the nightly special — Risotto Negro. Squid ink risotto loaded with so much seafood — mussels, squid, octopus and shrimp, all so perfectly cooked. The risotto was creamy but still had a nice bite to it. For those of you who flinch at the phrase squid ink, it really does not alter the flavor too much — it has a little bit of that umami flavor, and also lends a beautiful black color that makes for a nice presentation.

We also tried the pan-seared mahi mahi with lemon-caper sauce and sauteed spinach. Although very simple, it was a really well-cooked, delicious piece of fish. But we didn’t let things get too boring on the plate. We ordered a side of the gorgonzola truffle fries. Do I even need to explain why? So. Good.

After a quick scan of the dessert menu, there was really only one thing we felt the need to splurge on — the warm chocolate lava cake with Belgian chocolate ganache. These molten lava cakes seem to be on everyone’s menus lately. There’s something about a pool of melted chocolate that just can’t be resisted… It brings out the chocoholic in all of us!

Novecento Midtown is open daily for lunch and dinner and brunch on the weekends. Specials include $10 burgers and happy hour-priced draft beer every Thursday until 9pm, $11 pasta dishes all day on Wednesday, and half price champagne on Thursdays.


NOVECENTO - AVENTURA: Novecento: Refined Argentine & Pan-Latin Cuisine - Recipes

Novecento, the beloved Argentinean hotspot, is slated to open its fourth South Florida outpost in CityPlace Doral on December 13, 2018. Here, the brand will unveil the concept’s new look and feel, along with a refreshed and invigorated menu. Acquired by SuViche Hospitality Group in July 2017, the brand-wide innovation efforts are reflected in the new restaurant, but still hold true to Novecento’s heritage. To reimagine the menu, the team tapped world-renowned chef and partner Jaime Pesaque, whose resume includes stints at El Celler de Can Roca, the opening of Pacifico in Milan and his critically acclaimed restaurant Mayta and 500 Grados in Peru.

Created after extensive research and travel through Mendoza and Buenos Aires in Argentina, the menu is a cultural blend of Mediterranean influences along with the culinary creativity that has fueled Argentina’s cuisine and their mastery of meats. The use of fresh ingredients and open fire grilling techniques renders a menu that is refined yet approachable. “Novecento is an iconic and a beloved brand, so our vision is not to redefine but to revitalize it. We think loyal fans will be happy with what we have in store and new guests will find much to love,” says Aliosha Stern, SuViche Hospitality Group founder.

The menu is divided into simple categories: Primer Tiempo (First Course), Parrilla (Grill), Segundo Tiempo (Second Course), Provisiones (Sides) and Masas (Homemade Pastas). The restaurant will also boast a Mate Cart a beautiful mobile station featuring an earthy selection of yerba mate, a traditional Argentinian herbal tea known for having the strength of coffee and the health benefits of tea and a Wine Dispensing System which allows diners a wide variety of wine options including higher quality wines all available in different pour sizes.

Primer Tiempo dishes include a variety of items such as Stracciatella ($15) with cherry tomatoes Pulpo a la Brasa ($19) Filet Mignon Carpaccio ($15) and Albondigas ($13). From the Parrilla, entrees offer an array of selections like the Entraña (Skirt Steak) Vacío (Flap Steak) Costilla (Slow-Cooked Bone in Short Rib) Ojo de Bife (Ribeye) Gaucho (36 oz. Bone-In Ribeye) Lomo (Filet Mignon) Branzino (European Bass) and Pollo (Half Boneless All-Natural Chicken). To complement the Parilla, exceptional Provisiones include charred broccolini, sautéed spinach, sautéed vegetables, shrooms, creamed spinach, truffle fries and grilled kabocha squash. Dive into the Segundo Tiempo, and homemade pastas with dishes such as Risotto de Mariscos ($27) calamari, octopus, paprika, arborio rice and parmesan or handmade ravioli Calabaza ($18) a squash and smoked almond filled ravioli with brown butter and sage or the ravioli Funghi ($21) filled with mushroom and ricotta served with creamy truffle sauce and the Gnocchi Gratinado ($17) with homemade ricotta gnocchi, and au gratin Parmesan sauce.

In addition to the new dishes, Novecento debuts a marvelous new cocktail program, featuring over a dozen pours, while still offering all the classics. The diverse lineup inspired by Argentinian ingredients includes the Kilombo ($11) with Campari, grapefruit, lemon and beer the Mate Mule ($11) with yerba mate-infused vodka, lime, ginger, basil and rosemary and What’s the Dill ($12) with gin, dill-infused dolin blanc, lemon and cracked pepper. For a perfect after-dinner indulgence, the Sweet Surrender ($13) features rum, biscotti and dulce de leche. Guests can also enjoy a tableside experience of yerba mate prepared fresh – flavors include Traditional, served hot or cold, Citrus, served cold and a boozy option made with Gin, grapefruit Mezcal, pineapple Vodka and lemon. Also available is a specially curated wine list with premium selections from Argentina and around the world.

Novecento Doral will also offer their sprawling Happy Hour program seven days a week from 3PM to 8PM. Happy Hour revelers will have lots to celebrate with a special Happy Hour cocktail menu, which includes $6 drinks. In addition, enjoy great promotions such as Wine Tuesdays offering 50% off wine bottles on Tuesdays Pasta Wednesday with $11 pasta selections, and $8 Johnny Walker Black every Friday.

Not to be missed is the fabulous new brunch menu which will be available Saturday and Sundays. The a la carte brunch is a delicious mix of classics and new favorites, inspired by the brand’s Argentine roots. Think Kale Benedict topped with a tangy house-made yogurt hollandaise Salmon toast – strips of smoked salmon layered atop smoked eggplant aioli and griddled Sullivan Street bread Steak & Eggs with filet mignon “bites” tossed with a shallot cream and served with charred tomatoes and an unbelievable stack of Bacon Pancakes – three perfectly rendered buttermilk pancakes layered with candied bacon shards, dressed with bacon-infused maple syrup and topped with a scoop of whipped cream. Brunch-goers can also enjoy $20 bottomless libations like Bloody Mary’s, Sparkling Rosé, Mimosas, Sangrias, Heineken Draft and Mahou Draft.

Saladino Design Studios has been tapped to bring the team’s vision to life – in a brand-new 5,000 square foot venue awash in rustic charm, featuring copper accents and natural wood finishes. An open wine cellar will be located on the second floor while the interior space offers diners old-world charm in an airy and bustling space. The restaurant will feature ample indoor and outdoor seating, including a main dining room with seating for up to 120 guests, a bar area will feature seating for 60 guests and 90 outdoor seats for those wishing to dine al fresco.

I understand that the Novecento restaurant is an active and popular location for socializing in the evenings. Its also a great place to enjoy a relaxing lunch - during the weekdays. We enjoyed two delicious meals and the service we great. I'll be back - maybe in the evening next time!

Best meat in miami and best french fries with truffle oil EVER! Service is great, location perfect.. food delicious!

The Argentinean food is good, specially the empanadas and skirt steak, The place is very noisy, it the restaurant it is full, it is impossible to have a conversation. You have to scream to be heard by someone in your table. You can choose a table outside, but it is very hot in key biscayne most of the time. If you don't mind the experience, the food is good. Kind of pricey comparad to similar restaurants.

Completely amazing . Service , food. Atmosphere . This was a great experience !
We sat so that we could watch the chef . He asked what we liked and made my husband a custom "special " dish. Which was totally beyond our expectations.
A small quaint local hangout with food that will not soon be forgotten .
