Novecento is the perfect European style bistro that just happens to have a presence all over the world- New York, Miami, Buenos Aires, Punta del Este, and Cordoba.
The New York bistro is located in Soho at 343 West Broadway (near Grand St) and serves dishes that are a combination of Mediterranean and Latin American cuisines. Novecento provides a very comfortable atmosphere and is perfect for a relaxing weekend brunch before hitting the Soho shops. All three appetizer salads interested me- the Ensalada de Queso azul (blue cheese, pears, mix greens, beets, walnuts, raspberry balsamic vinagrette), Caprese Tartain (warm mozzarella, tomatoes, diced olives served over a puff pastry), and Ensalada de Rucula (arugula salad, cherry tomatoes, shaved Parmesan cheese, truffle citrus vinaigrette). I also love the facet that they offer roasted or mashed sweet potatoes. If the wait is too long at Novecento there are tons of other great French bistros nearby that are also open for weekend brunch.
