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 our 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.  We 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 our term of endearment for our first son, Miles. A spitfire of a hockey playing little chef who loves music – we felt that his spirit perfectly exemplifies who we are as a restaurant. His baby brother, Hank Ryan is already working hard to be as beastly as his big brother.
