Brunch at Novecento is classic. The Latin American and European-style bistro's Aventura, Brickell, and Midtown locations offer a traditional weekend meal, fusing American-inspired breakfast and lunch options with Spanish flavors.
The eatery's menu is simple and straightforward: There are ten main entrée options, ranging from light to heavy. For those looking for a healthier bite, elect for the fresh fruit and granola with banana, blueberries, and greek yogurt; or the hearty and healthy omelet made with three egg whites, sautéed peppers, spinach, and feta cheese served alongside a salad.
Brunch-goers with a soft spot for egg dishes should order the eggs benedict, made with two poached eggs and Canadian bacon on top of a lightly toasted English muffin. Hollandaise sauce is drizzled ontop; or the royal version, which substitutes bacon for smoked salmon.
There's a Novecento Benedict too, which is made with Canadian bacon and grilled skirt steak. All three plates are served with the eatery's house fries.
An omelet or two eggs any style are on the menu too. Or try the smoked salmon bagel platter, served with sliced tomato, onions, capers, and cream cheese.
For a more Latin American-style brunch, huevos rancheros are offered. It's made with two fried eggs over a flour tortilla with tomato salsa, black beans, pico de gallo, sour cream, and guacamole scattered on top.
Forego the à la carte menu and elect for a parrillada to share table side. It costs $62 and can feed up to four diners depending on hunger. It includes a nine-ounce skirt steak, 11-ounce vacio, half of a cooked chicken, two chorizos, one morcilla, six-ounce mollejitas, and sautéed bell peppers. A choice of three side dishes is given, including french fries, mixed greens, rice, and mashed potatoes. A bottle of wine can be added to the meal too for an extra $28.
End brunch with an order of French toast made with brioche bread battered in eggs and topped with bananas and strawberries. It's perfect to share among two to three diners for dessert.
