Going tonight to Thomas Beisel for the first time. I'm not so familiar with Austrian food. Any recommendations, either generally Austrian or specific to Thomas Beisel would be greatly appreciated!

    i had dinner there about a year ago...id avoid the country pate...a little too dry and crumbly for my taste.

    i had the pig cheeks...really good...but nothing amazing.

      The cod schnitzel is quite nice, and comes with a cucumber salad and a nice little potato salad. It's much better than the veal version. I've also had a few of their fish specials, which have been generally quite good, and once ordered their vegetarian entree, which involved a polenta cake with lots of different veggies and some fontina cheese, but there were a lot of things going on on the plate, and it was a lot more substantial -- and tasty -- that many of the veggie options at comparable places.

      Also, if they have the fried mushroom appetizer, get it. Not greasy, just delicious.

      I love the pork cheeks, panini, beet salad, napoleon -- topped off by a Hoegarden. Ahhhh . . .
