Miami New Times' Description
Diners bored by beef should head to this casually stylish neighborhood bistro, which specializes in simple yet elegant contemporary Argentine cuisine. Traditionalists can enjoy grilled steaks, sausages, sweetbreads, et cetera, but Novecento also serves internationally influenced chicken, fish, and even vegetarian dishes - plus a slew of imaginative salads. Those who want a hint of beef, not a hunk of it, will be happy with the signature ensalada Novecento, grilled skirt steak on fresh greens dressed with a creamy mustard vinaigrette. Fried calamari is one of the town's better treatments of squid, thanks to the substitution of a spicy-sweet chili dipping sauce for the usually overwhelming marinara. Also highly recommended: agnolotti de cangrejo, properly al dente ravioli squares bathed in rich saffron sauce.
