BierBeisl: 99 Essential Restaurants 2013
PHOTO BY ANNE FISHBEIN

Among Bernhard Mairinger's contributions to L.A. dining, there's this: He's filling some of the void left when Spago removed goulash and kaiserschmarrn from its menu. But that's hardly his crowning achievement. At BierBeisl, the young Austrian chef presents the food of his homeland — schnitzel, sausages and the like — with exacting standards and great success. Mairinger's an incredibly well-trained and talented chef, one whose dedication to detail-oriented cooking pays off. A dish of venison with red cabbage, Brussels sprouts and pomegranate showcases his creativity but also, in the sweet braised cabbage and the lean, medium-rare venison, his exceptional technique. Even trendier dishes, such as pork belly over lentils, go the extra mile. The lentils, cooked in braising juice, rosemary and thyme, achieve a delightfully unexpected depth of flavor. BierBeisl's serious cooking and low-key vibe is an antidote to much of what's wrong with the L.A. dining scene, and for that we are hungrily grateful. 9669 Little Santa Monica Blvd., Beverly Hills; (310) 271-7274, bierbeisl-la.com. Mon.-Tues. & Thurs.-Sat., noon-mid. Entrees $21-$38. Full bar.
