Crabcakes: So beloved, and so frequently disappointing. Not at Cov Wayzata, where chef Clay Gibbons churns out a bruiser of thing, one that’s roughly 95 percent lumpy crab meat, a signature dish that’s worth every penny of its $19 price tag — and then some. At Sunday brunch, Gibbons makes this blue ribbon-worthy crabcake the center of a Benedict. Two words of advice: Order it. 700 Lake St. E., Wayzata; 952-473-5253; covwayzata.com
