Situated in a 1911 Craftsman bungalow, the Little Beast is a neighborhood restaurant located in the heart of Eagle Rock. Offering both indoor and outdoor seating, the Little Beast serves modern American fare. Intended for sharing, the menu is comprised of small plates and large mains with several unique daily specials.
The Little Beast Restaurant is the realization of years of culinary training, family dreams and determination by husband and wife team Deborah Schwartz-Lowenthal and Chef Sean Lowenthal. Little Beast came to be because of their desire to have a restaurant on the East Side that rivals the great “foodie” spots in an intimate and inviting space that so easily populates Silverlake and the West Side. Offering a menu of progressive American comfort food, Chef Lowenthal's menus speak to the seasons, the availability of pristine, local produce and to the talents of his team. Little Beast strive to be the best dining experience to hit the East Side of LA. A culinary graduate of the Art Institute in Colorado, Lowenthal served as the Chef at Greenbriar in Boulder, Colorado before relocating to Los Angeles in 2010 where he then became the sous chef at LA's iconic Chateau Marmont.
The name “Little Beast” came from their term of endearment for their son, Miles. A spitfire of a hockey playing little chef who loves music – they felt that his spirit perfectly exemplifies who they are as a restaurant.
