Novecento is gearing up to open in Doral before summer's end. In the meantime, the Argentine restaurant has rolled out a new brunch menu at its Aventura and Brickell locations.
Novecento Brickell churns out French toast, bacon pancakes, and steak and eggs seven days a week. In Aventura, brunch is limited to Saturday and Sunday.
New menu items include a kale Benedict topped with a tangy house-made yogurt hollandaise; salmon toast, which smears smoked eggplant aioli on a slice of Sullivan Street bread with strips of smoked salmon; and the Croque 900, a croissant topped with ham, fried eggs, mozzarella, and béchamel.
Available only on the weekends is a $68
Also on the weekends, bottomless drinks including bloody marys, prosecco, rosé, mimosas, sangria, and select beer are available for an added $20. Or try mate, an Argentine classic prepared tableside.
Recently added sweet items include the French toast Argentino, in which slices of brioche are garnished with condensed milk, dulce de leche, and whipped cream; or the bacon pancakes, where a stack of three buttermilk pancakes are topped with candied bacon shards and bacon-infused maple syrup.
Novecento's fourth location, in Doral, will feature a new interior design, along with a refreshed menu and cocktail program. The opening is expected for late summer.
