Pizza's not the only item on the menu. There are the tried-and-true appetizers — toasted ravioli, wings, jalapeño poppers. But pizza is what will bring you here. (Take note: Mr. X doesn't serve booze, which might help explain the heavy to-go/delivery trade.

To review: Weeks of on-again, off-again travail finally deposit me on the doorstep of a pizza parlor so low-profile that it goes by the name Mr. X, owned by a Bosnian who's quietly turning out some of the best pies in all of St. Louis.

And what, pray tell, might this experience teach us?

First, that even in a time of chaos and upheaval on the restaurant scene — the past few months have seen a veritable boom in openings, a stunning fact, given the uncertain state of our economy — you never know when or where you might encounter something rare, something good and distinctive.

And second, that Mr. X marks the spot.
