"Unassuming" and "Beverly Hills" are not words you often see in the same sentence, but that is exactly what BierBeisl is: a lovely, cozy, unassuming Beverly Hills restaurant. Here, Patina-alum Bernhard Mairinger—all 6-foot-7-inches of him—mans a kitchen no bigger than the one of your first studio apartment, plating Austrian fare that anticipates, then exceeds, your expectations. There is, of course, schnitzel—pork, veal and turkey are offered and served with subtly sweet lignonberries—that pairs well with a savory mustard fingerling potato salad. Sausages get their own separate menu and they, like the silky weisswurst poached in milk, are similarly elevated well beyond the norm. For dessert, you'll likely be drawn to the flaky apfelstrudel, but also consider the kaiserschmarrn, a light, fluffy pancake that’s torn and served alongside homemade plum compote.
