In 2012 at the age of 27, Chef Bernhard Mairinger brought Los Angeles its first taste of authentic Austrian cuisine with BierBeisl restaurant, his highly anticipated solo debut to LA's dining scene. The restaurant offered diners a chance to enjoy traditional Austrian cuisine with a modern twist, in a space that Los Angeles Weekly said “feels as if it could be tucked into a steep street in a mountain town in Austria, or Belgium, or Germany.”
Chef Mairinger was trained in his native Austria and worked in various restaurants and resorts throughout Europe before coming to LA as chef de cuisine at Patina, the Michelin star restaurant, named Best Restaurant of LosAngeles in 2010 by the Los Angeles Times. Other key stations of his young career include: Restaurant Neichel (Barcelona, Spain), Restaurant Da Gianni (Mannheim, Germany), Hotel Zuerserhof (Zuers, Austria), Hotel Alex (Zermatt, Switzerland), Hotel Ashdown Park (East Sussex, UK), Restaurant Vendome (Cologne, Germany) and the Grand Sheraton Sukhumvit (Bangkok, Thailand).
