@SteingartenLA – Westside gem as Oktoberfest nears

September 24, 2011

As you walk into the dining room for family-style seating, appropriate for a hoffbrau, the gorgeous Southern California sunlight cascades down softly over the room. The valuted ceiling at Steingarten LA is accented by a rather large skylight opening that is completely open. (In poor weather, the retractible roof is restored as a cover to keep rain out.)

The menu is simple, (click here to download from their website) a few well chosen and elegantly served German cuisine standards. Sausage lovers will find 20 gourmet variations to try. Very tasty comfort food and, with quiet laid back atmosphere, fosters a relaxed dining experience. Try the red cabbage slaw as a side or the pretzel as a starter.

The beer menu is a beauty paegent of Bavarian and German beers with some American French and Italian brews thrown in for levity. No Czech pilsners, alas. 70 beer selections. 20 rotating craft beers. Happy Hour offers some offbeat mixed drinks, “exotic signature drinks” and lots of beer. Happy Hour is every weekday from 4 – 7 pm. Full bar.
