B&B cooked up a unique restaurant dining experience and zest'd it with a bit of rock n roll. You can chow down in our Burger & Beer Joint Restaurant and/or high five your friends to your winning team in our Sports Bar !

The cuisine at Novecento is a refined co-existence of Argentine, Mediterranean and Pan Latin cuisines heightened by French techniques, this style is perhaps best called NUEVO BISTRO. A comfort food restaurant catering first and foremost to the neighborhood clientele. Excellent food, good value and outstanding service create an atmosphere that is sure to become a regular hang-out. This sibling of the New York’s most welcoming meeting point, regardless of final destination is always Novecento. “MEET ME AT 900" Enjoy our Argentinean signature dishes, the typical Empanadas, Provoleta, Sweetbreads with a twist and flavorful grilled steaks. The menu is complimented by a great selection of wines and crafted cocktails. Bar bites also available.

We had the idea to open a restaurant where both of our specialties would be together and increase the number of friends... and we did it! Between all those friends at home was born the name "Los Parrilleros" Our dream came true very soon when we found the right place, and after hard work and effort we had a Grand Opening on October 16, 2002. <br><br>The heart of our kitchen is our "Fogon del Tata Pedro" in memory of Daniel's Father who showed him the art of charcoal cooking on the grill. Our Bar is named "Medio y Medio" the name of the original drink of Uruguay made in a mix of dry white wine and Moscato espumante dulzon. In our kitchen we make our homemade pasta, and our chefs cook delicious dishes of chicken, fish, veal, and rissotos (Rice)...."bocato di cardinali!!!" Our customers recommend our restaurant because of the "ambience", as well as the food, and because certain evenings become unforgettable while enjoying, jazz, Tango,and music of all times with excellent performers.
