This elegant chain was a successful attempt at bringing Argentine food to the U.S. When the first branch opened at in Buenos Aires, it shifted into reverse and focused on North American specialties like burgers, sandwiches, and salads, along with a few local favorites like empanadas, and, of course, meat off the grill. Novecento is known in the expat community for serving up one of the city's best norteamericano brunches around. On weekends crowds flock in looking for a taste of home, mixing it up with neighborhood families checking out dishes from north of the border

I've dined in the BA location as well as NYC On a second trip to BA it seemed like a fun idea to return after a most memorable meal the first visit. It was awful...the meat was the worst I've ever had and it actually made me unwell. It seems to have taken a dive, and with so many other fine choices...move on.
