Klime Kovaceski has been a Miami mainstay since he arrived during the 1980s. His latest effort, Crust, located near the Miami River and Garcia's Seafood Grille & Fish Market, seems more keen on big business than great cooking. The pizza has been specifically designed to stay fresh during a 45-minute delivery and reheat well the next day. The plates here are massive, possibly as large as those at the Cheesecake Factory. The problem is that none of it — including gummy risotto or bland beef-turkey meatballs — is the kind of thing you'd want to eat the following day.
