WILL METAYER

General manager

Will was born in Rockport, Maine where his interests in creative expression and entrepreneurship began early. Living in the seafood capital of the country in a family of French heritage, a passion for food and cooking was inevitable. Will found himself working in restaurant kitchens as soon as he could attain a worker’s permit, then went on to study art and business at University of Rhode Island. In 2013, he moved to Los Angeles and began working at El Cid where he was quickly promoted to bar manager. He revamped the beverage program and co-created pop-up restaurant “La Verbena”.  As the General Manager of Little Beast, Will believes a restaurant’s success is defined by artistic execution and innovation.

Jose A. Perez

After graduating from culinary school in Santiago, he worked in several restaurants while attending art school.

He worked at Palihouse Hotel and as the sous chef at Waterloo & City before becoming Chef de Cuisine at Little Beast.
