In honor of Klimt’s sesquicentennial, the Getty Museum is displaying over 100 of his drawings, many of which have never been seen before in America. Though we won't get to view the long-lost painting that was recovered today in Northern Austria, there is plenty to see (and eat!) at the exhibition.

To fete the occasion, Getty is presenting an Austrian-inspired Niman Ranch pork schnitzel with Yukon Gold whipped potatoes, escarole, Parmesan, arugula, and rosemary honey mustard ($20, lunch, $26 at dinner). They'll also do Austrian beer flights for $7.

Of course, if you're looking to dine outside the Getty's campus, there's always an opp to snap up sausages, schnapps, and stammtisch at the new Austrian restaurant BierBeisl in Beverly Hills.

Gustav Klimt: The Magic of Line will be on view until September 23, 2012. Lunch hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Dinner hours are Saturday 5:00-9:00 p.m. Brunch is served on Sunday from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.The Getty's restaurant has also extended their hours to have the restaurant stay open 'til 9 p.m. on Fridays. You can make reservations here.
