This week I visit PW Pizza (2017 Chouteau Avenue; 314-241-7799), the new restaurant from Paul and Wendy Hamilton, owners of Eleven Eleven Mississippi and Vin de Set.

If you order one of the "Classics" at PW Pizza -- the pepperoni, say -- what arrives at your table looks like nothing so much as a pepperoni pizza. This is more remarkable than it might seem. In the past few years St. Louis has seen an evolution in our pizza sensibilities -- an evolution or maybe an arms race, pizzas slid into wood-fired brick ovens that cook at six, no, seven, no, eight hundred degrees.

Visit the RFT restaurant page late this afternoon or check back here tomorrow morning to see what I think.
