BierBeisl Imbiss to Downtown by LA Eater

LA Eater” … DOWNTOWN—Although BierBeisl chef Bernhard Mairinger is still working to relocate his praised Austrian eatery from Beverly Hills to the west side, he’s also opening BierBeisl Imbiss this summer at the Spring Arcade Building downtown. It’s the same compound that’s will house Gelateria Uli and Guisados and here Mairinger has room to feed 50- 60 guests a more casual BierBeisl menu that will definitely include sausages.

BierBeisl’s Bernhard Mairinger to open Imbiss downtown this summer

LA Times“… Sometime this summer the 29-year-old, over-6’7″ chef will open BierBeisl Imbiss in the Spring Arcade Building on 5th Street between Broadway and Spring. The location is right in the thick of downtown’s thriving restaurant scene, in a Beaux Arts/Spanish Renaissance building that dates from 1924. His idea is to make BierBeisl Imbiss a much more casual place as opposed to the fine dining he’ll feature at BierBeisl. Imbiss, in fact, is the German word for snack and also the name of little food stands you find in train stations and on and off major squares serving simple sandwiches and other fare.

BierBeisl Imbiss will be a more casual take on Austrian cuisine, less expensive than the original BierBeisl, with no expensive china or glassware. In fact the china won’t be china at all, but wood or palm fiber or paper, everything recyclable, says Mairinger. But he will have the proper beer glasses for each beer…” » Read more

Bernhard Mairinger on BierBeisl’s Closing, and Reopening

la weekly logo“… It’s really because of the high demand for tables, as well as catering and private events, Mairinger says. We don’t have the space here, or the storage. We are very lucky to have popularity, and people interested in investing. I have so much more I want to bring to L.A., and a bigger space will allow me to bring it to a better level.” … Mairinger says that “the restaurant’s feel and concept won’t change. It will be a homey, cozy atmosphere, a lot of wood and stone and ceramic. There will be a bigger bar, so we’ll have more opportunity to do exclusive beers. The menu will be bigger, and there will be a separate bakery and pastry area so we can make our own bread. He says as far as the menu goes, he may cut down on portion sizes and price to facilitate sharing, although if you order a schnitzel you’re still going to get a proper schnitzel…» Read more

BierBeisl to close next month and reopen in a larger space in 2014

LA Times“The new restaurant will seat 100 to 125. We’ll have a bigger bar, a more detailed wine list, definitely more beer, a few of them exclusive, and then, of course, more schnapps, he says. He also plans on a cafe and bakery reminiscent of those in Vienna, open all day seven days a week and serving traditional Viennese pastries and desserts. That means fluffy bites of kaiserschmarrn, apple strudel, warm plum dumplings — and, of course, Viennese-style coffee. » Read more
