Pizza of the week -Crust

I  think I have a new favorite pizza place. Crust at 668 NW 5th, north of the river overlooking the bridge.  The mozzarella caprese and grilled octopus  were delish for starters but let’s face it I came for the pizza. Their specialty, the Crust Pizza (figs, prosciutto & blue cheese) is not to be missed.  Maybe wanting to be more than just a pizza place the rest of the menu seems a bit heavy with many options like sandwiches, pastas and other entrees.  They also have a good wine and beer selection that only needs a good rose and cider to be complete.

I’m possibly remiss in not beginning this post with a mention of the service.  Hostess and owner Anita Kovaceski, along with her husband, Chef Klime Kovaceski,  was a great example of the best hospitality you’ll hope to find anywhere in Miami.

The location may seem out-of-the-way for those not familiar with the area, but it’s only a block past Seaspice, and Crust also has valet parking available.  They’re open 5pm-10pm, 11pm on Friday and Saturday, and closed on Monday. The outdoor patio area wasn’t set up on my visit but I’ve heard they have plans, it seems like a good casual option for grabbing a quick bite on one of these cooler days, pre-sunset, while walking your dog. Inside is more Mediterranean themed, classy and comfortable.  Reservations are available on OpenTable.

One thought on “Pizza of the week -Crust

  1. Love this place. Being from the northeast I’ve been looking for a good pizza here in Miami. And you’re right, the service was the best, the Hostess (owner?) made us feel welcome and looking forward to going back. I’m not sure outdoor dinning would work here, maybe a few picnic table benches, and water bowls for those walking their dogs.
