We understand your pain, L.A., and are hoping this is the last time we write the word "German" for a little while, too. But Wirtshaus is now soft-open on La Brea, and since we've expressed our share of cynicism, it's time to score a menu and suss this new biergarten out.

The early assurance was that this wouldn't be a Wurstkuche rip-off, but an authentic German experience and that turns out to be so far true. German-born chef Kenny Seliger is presiding over a long list of dishes spelled out in German and English that proves the team is way more than a bunch of sausage slingers. Wirtshaus carries everything from spaetzle to pretzels to schniztel and fish salad, along with a dessert of spaghetti-shaped ice cream, which all sounds like pretty solid drinking food for teaming up with the restaurant's 30 German and Austrian brew, and wine list focused on Austria, Germany, and Cali. Even our Polish half is a little intrigued by the possibilities. Take a look at Wirtshaus' full menu, below.
