  • PW Pizza: It's Just Good
    The pepperoni is one of four pizzas dubbed "Classics," along with a sausage, a mushroom and a traditional margherita. Its simplicity is winning. The tomato sauce has the acidic bite and full, mildly sweet flavor of a good tomato, with a hint of heat. The mozzarella is melted to perfect...

  • Sade and John Legend at Scottrade Center
    If a lead singer can ever be a cipher, Sade Adu certainly inhabits that paradox. As an artist, she resists both interpretations and expectations. She rarely grants interviews; she's released two albums in the past eighteen years; she only tours when necessary. And the songs she sings with her...

  • NKOTBSB at the Scottrade Center
    The nine-person nostalgia train entered night amidst smoke, glitter and streamers, like the crystal-studded version of the biker from the Village People. Swathed in leather, studs, cubic zirconium and lots and lots of zippers that probably don't even open, the fivesome and the foursome...

  • Three Kings Public House in the Delmar Loop
    The standout appetizer is that pub classic of housemade chips and rarebit — in this case a "fondue" made from Irish cheddar and Urban Chestnut's terrific Winged Nut ale. The chips — crisp, golden-brown, slightly chewy and brimming with potato flavor — are so good that Three Kings should offer...
