Little Beast is one of the most popular restaurants in Eagle Rock, and where you’ll find us on a typical date night on the Eastside. The American-ish menu is good. You’ll eat dishes like spicy chipotle hummus, salmon belly mousse, and sweet corn risotto But it’s the atmosphere that’ll keep you coming back. Little Beast is located on the grounds of a large converted bungalow on Colorado Blvd. complete with a wrap-around front porch, an interior filled with various nooks and crannies, and a string-lit back patio that feels like you’re hanging out in a neighbor’s backyard. It’s romantic, but festive, and ideal for everything from a big group dinner with friends to letting the person sitting across from you know that you’re really into this.
