When BierBeisl unexpectedly closed in 2013, the city lost an Austrian-food gem. But while we wait for both BierBeisl Imbiss (a stall in downtown's Spring Arcade, now slated to open next year) and the hinted-at Westside reopening of a full-service BierBeisl restaurant (its location is still unknown), chef Bernhard Mairinger continues to bring his love of authentic Austrian fare to pop-ups all over town. Our food critic Besha Rodell attended a small one at Mess Hall earlier this year and now — in a classic East-versus-West showdown — you can get a taste of Mairinger's cooking when it is paired alongside specialties from Si Laa Thai at this upcoming street food–inspired dinner. For two nights, Mairinger and the Si Laa team will be serving six courses of Austrian-versus-Thai creations, including veal loaf rolls with crispy vegetable taro rolls and Austrian-style meatballs served alongside Thai grilled pork skewers.

Mon., Dec. 8, 5-10 p.m.; Tue., Dec. 9, 5-10 p.m., 2014
