The Little Beast serves progressive American comfort food, seasonal modern cuisine with integrity that is fresh, vibrant, and delicious – served as it is ready, and meant to be shared. Be prepared for an outstanding tasting representing this outstanding restaurant! They hope to be known as the sophisticated neighborhood dining spot of the East Side, and strive to be the best Neighborhood Restaurant in Los Angeles. The name “Little Beast” came from the term of endearment for the family’s 10 year old son, Miles. A spitfire of a hockey- playing little chef who loves the blues and plays guitar, ‘we felt that his spirit perfectly exemplifies who we are as a restaurant.’ Chef Sean Lowenthal received his degree in Culinary Arts at The Art Institute of Colorado. He was the Chef at Greenbriar in Boulder before moving to LA in 2010. Until he left to start The Little Beast, Sean was the Sous Chef at Chateau Marmont for the last two years. His wife and partner of The Little Beast, Deborah Schwartz-Lowenthal, is a Photographer’s Agent and owner of DSREPS in Los Angeles and New York City. www.littlebeastrestaurant.com
