Fall Preview 2014: 12 Major Restaurants Opening In Los Angeles by FoodRepublic Logo“… 11. BierBeisl Imbiss
Chef Bernhard Mairinger closed his acclaimed Austrian restaurant BierBeisl in Beverly Hills late last year, but soon you’ll be able to find him Downtown: BierBeisl Imbiss will open this fall in the budding Spring Arcade Building in Downtown’s Historic Core neighborhood. If you’re fluent in German, you’ve probably already guessed that this will be a decidedly more casual spot than the original BierBeisl; for those not: “imbiss” roughly translates to “snack” and is the name for the small fast food stands in train stations and other public spaces throughout Germany. The menu, then, will focus on Austrian street food, which will indeed include those sausages. There also will be a bakery (fresh Viennese pastries!), bar and outdoor patio. 541 S. Spring Street, Downtown, …” » Read more

When Austria and Thailand Collide: BierBeisl’s Pop-Up Dinner at Si Laa

LA Mag Logo“I had always loved Thai food, but it was an eye-opening experience eating and cooking it in its place of origins,” says Mairinger. “The curries are made from scratch. In certain areas you can pick kaffir lime leaves off the streets. Instead of ‘bread and butter’ there was mieng khum, a Northern Thai specialty of bitter leaves filled with dried shrimp, peanuts, coconut flakes, diced ginger and lemon with tamarind sauce. And after eating from the little fruit carts, you swear to yourself you’ll never eat any other fruit again…”
