AVENTURA, Fla. – July 25, 2013 – Town Center Aventura, a lifestyle destination located just south of Aventura Mall, recently announced a fall opening for Argentinian bistro Novecento.

Known for its exciting atmosphere, award-winning cuisine and wide selection of premium Argentinean wines, Novecento’s Town Center Aventura location will be the company’s newest addition to its ten existing locations in Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico, and the U.S. Novecento’s cuisine is a refined co-existence of Argentine, Mediterranean and Pan-Latin flavors heightened by French techniques and in-depth attention to presentation and detail.

The Town Center Aventura location will feature a warm, welcoming environment and casual, sophisticated dining room with European Bistro accents, a custom-built wine cellar, and a Malbec Private dining room. Additional highlights include prominent chefs’ tables and a brick oven. Quality, flavor, value, reasonable prices and sincere service will be distinct attributes of the Novecento experience.

“We’ve come a long way from a small yet well-loved coffee shop in SoHo – now a destination for great food and fun – but we’ve stayed true to the core elements that have built Novecento: great comfort food, drinks and music,” said Hector Rolotti, president and CEO of Novecento Group. “We are thrilled to be able to celebrate our 11th location with passionate fans in Aventura. Aventura’s diverse community makes it the ideal location for Novecento’s expansion in South Florida.”

Novecento’s third Miami location and eleventh internationally, the new cafe is expected to bring more than 70 jobs to the area.

Formerly known as Loehmann’s Fashion Island, Town Center Aventura is being repositioned as a gathering place for local residents and area visitors to shop, dine and enjoy family-friendly entertainment.

Construction for Town Center Aventura, which remains open, began earlier this year and will continue through the fall. In addition to Novecento, a 34,000 square-foot Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th store and restaurants Buffalo Wild Wings and Café-Cita were announced as new tenants. The lifestyle center’s new architectural design includes upgraded building facades with higher, more dramatic elevations; lush landscaping and enhanced streetscapes; a gazebo for afternoon and evening events; and a site plan that improves pedestrian and traffic flow throughout the center.
