Novecento SOHO Bistro Argentino | New York, United States | So last night, we decided to go Argentinean in New York, and one of my top choices when I want to kickback my heritage is Novecento SOHO. Located in the neighborhood of SOHO over West Broadway, this charming Argentinean Bistro welcomes you with taking the old mantra “mi casa es su casa” (my home is your home) to another level.
Small, happening but at the same time very intimate, to be enjoyed with a glass of good Malbec or Torrontes. Novecento combines the spirit of two sister cities ; Buenos Aires and New York. Novecento also pays homage to the nostalgia of the turn of the nineteenth century when migration from the old world changed the face and added depth to the fabric of city life. Novecento salutes the immigrant experience, the art of memory and the nostalgia for home which has fueled our cities.
Walk into Novecento, enjoy a frothy rich espresso with fresh-baked croissants at the start of the day. Read the newspaper? For lunch enjoy a fresh green salad with slivers of marinated steak while glanzing at a fútbol match in an exhilaratingly care-free atmosphere. At night the libations flow, enjoy classic hearty fare, and then dance to the bossa-tango of a live DJ. A short but lovely full menu that combines and mixes the best traditional Argentinean options, with some European touches, resembling the true nature of this country. Empanadas of course are a MUST as the starter, my choice Chicken juicy Empanadas with a touch of Chimichurri. (USD 10)
Another must, that I introduced to my boyfriend was the Provoleta. Literally is grilled cheese with herbs and red pepper on top. It is so GOOD. !!!!! Traditional Argentinean provolone cheese au gratin, roasted onions, cherry tomatoes, red peppers and oregano (USD 11). As the main course, of course we both went for the classic Chicken Milanesas con Pure, lightly breaded with mashed potatoes. (USD 20). All went down with a lovely bottle of Malbec Terraza Reserva.
For dessert. !!!! Well the management impressed us with a degustation of Argentinean delights, including three of my favorites: Flan Mixto with whipped cream and dulce de leche + Chocolate volcano + Panqueques (aka. crepes) with dulce de leche. I am flying to Buenos Aires tonight for a week, and since last night, I already feel like I was there. Novecento is a new member of our Networking group MLGTPP and is the chosen catering company that will join us for our upcoming event to take place at the Consulate of Argentina next March 14th.
