Having been to the other Novecento locations in Miami, one thing I noticed about this one is a more relaxed, casual feel. It's got the same great food and attentive service, but in a more laid-back setting. We started off the night with a nice Malbec from their wine cellar and took a look at the menu. A smoky, alluring aroma filled the air, and I realized it came from their wood-burning brick oven. Aha! I knew what I was having first: one of their delicious flatbreads. There are over nine to choose from and we went for the Capricciosa, a cheesy delight made with tomato sauce, mozarella, ham, mushrooms and artichokes. It was crispy on the outside and oozing with creamy mozzarella on top. Didn't I tell you there was a refreshing twist to their Argentinian cuisine? It was gone in the blink of an eye.

Once composed, we ordered dessert. We tried their Panqueques con Dulce de Leche y Helado. This sweet ending consisted of warm crepes filled with dulce de leche, and topped with powdered sugar. Smiling down from the top was a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, strawberries and whipped cream. This was definitely an adventure to be repeated.
