Novecento embraces the mantra: “mi casa es su casa” in its mecca for Argentinian cuisine. The menu is extensive, and your head will likely be spinning with the promise of empanadas, sopas, croquetas, quesadillas, and steaks. Favorite dishes include the signature hand-carved-beef empanadas, the pan-seared sweetbreads with sautéed mushrooms, French beans, corn, and baby greens, and the picada -- or sharing platter -- with fontina, Swiss, and manchego cheeses served with quince jelly, marinated mozzarella, Kalamata olives, and mixed nuts served with toasts. Novecento also conflates Italian influences with its Argentinian flavors: pastas include crab ravioli with creamy saffron sauce and potato gnocchi, while pizzas include pies with ham and white mushrooms, and prosciutto and mozzarella. Enjoy the dishes in a bistro setting in which the focal point is a lighted red dome above the bar.
