Restaurant Details

This Austrian restaurant in Russian Hill can't have gauged the neighborhood more astutely: The mood is casual and celebratory, burnished with enough European-ness to spark nostalgia for a thousand summer trips. Same with the entrée prices, which average $15; the solid but not gut-busting food, which is often quite good; and the neighborhood appeal of giant steins of beer (including a popular two-liter glass boot). With the exception of unctuous, crisp-edged pork trotter cakes, owners Karl and Albert Rainer bring out the fresher, bright side of Austrian cuisine: excellent roasted-vegetable strudel, a roasted beet salad garnished with toasted walnuts, oilless schnitzel, gossamer spaetzle. And the German and Belgian beer list is worth tasting your way through, provided you do it in normal-sized glasses.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
