THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Novecento Restaurant Review: It has been said that Argentine cuisine can be described in one word: beef. Most Miami Argentine restaurants indeed specialize in parrilla-grilled steaks, but there are exceptions. More than just another parrillada place, this contemporary Argentine resto-lounge serves internationally-influenced lighter Latin fare, including house-made crab meat-stuffed agnolotti in creamy saffron sauce, a velvety ginger-spiked carrot and butternut squash soup, and a new-style grouper ceviche: thin slices of lime-marinated fish, with a cunningly balanced jalapeño and watermelon garnish. Keep an eye out for seafood specials; this mini-chain's management allows individual locations' chefs the most creative leeway with these changing items. Of course there’s beef, too---a flavorful vacio (flank steak) a la parrilla for traditionalists, or a more mod ensalada Novecento (Dijon vinaigrette-dressed greens with avocado and slices of juicy, custom-cooked grilled skirt steak).
