CRUST Restaurant

After 20-plus years of successfully operating fine dining restaurants across America, Chef Klime Kovaceski’s latest passion involves pizza – which is not as strange as it seems.

In 2008, Klime was part of the creative team behind MEZ in Charlotte, North Carolina, which combined a theater, restaurant and nightclub in one complex. The need for food with mass appeal resulted in a pizza featured as one of Charlotte Magazine’s favorite dishes.

Two years later, during Klime’s helm at Trio on the Bay in Miami Beach, The Miami Herald enthusiastically touted his “charmingly misshapen, thin-crust pizzas.”

Kovaceski’s next project found him delving into the delivery and takeout business. The idea of creating food that is easily accessible to everyone who lives or works in an area not only appeals to his instincts as a chef, but

he also feels strongly that this is “the future of the hospitality industry.”

So the concept of CRUST came to be created by Klime and his Australian wife Anita. The stylish restaurant aims to provide not just the best pizza in town (with toppings such as figs, pancetta and blue cheese; mozzarella and basil; and pesto-artichoke), but will also serve Mediterranean cuisine culled from chef Kovaceski’s personal recipes and prepared with his talented touch.

The delivery service promises to be distinctive as well: Hot food brought to your door hot. And fast.

“CRUST is not some nostalgic waltz into my past: I’ll leave the Greatest Hits routine for aging rock stars. It is, instead, a natural extension of my passion for feeding people and being part of the food world’s exciting present and future.”
