Hotel introduces Kaets Steakhouse - locally sourced with Southern flair

This summer, Sonesta Gwinnett Place offers locals and guests an all-new dining experience at Kaets Steakhouse, an innovative new take on traditional steakhouse cuisine. Kaets, which is ‘steak’ spelled backward, serves generous cuts of beef, fresh seafood and savory pasta entrees for dinner, seven days a week.
Signature dishes available at Kaets Steakhouse include its chili soy-rubbed rib eye, pan-roasted filet mignon, North Carolina mountain trout, Atlantic black grouper, trencherman French dip, Coca Cola-braised osso buco and seared bistro tender. Truffle steak frites, creamed collards, peanut rice pilaf with corn gravy, drunken crimini mushrooms or buttermilk battered Vidalia onion rings are a perfect complement to any entrée. View the full menu.
The steakhouse partners with Brasstown Beef, Steve Whitmore’s North Georgia- and North Carolina-based farms, for its beef. Whitmore’s steers are a Swiss Braunvieh and Black Angus cross often referred to as a Braun Angus. Brasstown Beef is all-natural and raised without antibiotics or any added hormones on certified “Pasture Centered,” stress-free farms supplied by sweet granite water wells. Garlic and cinnamon are included in the steers’ diet which, combined with 14 days of dry aging, ensures premium flavor and maximum tenderness.
In addition to Brasstown Beef, Kaets Steakhouse’s menu features a variety of locally sourced ingredients from Flat Creek Dairy, Sweet Grass Dairy, Georgia Wild Shrimp, Inc., Norah Mills, Anson Mills, Abita Brewing Company and Prestige Farms.
Highlights on the dessert menu include the steakhouse’s bourbon and burnt sugar milkshake and cinnamon fried berry pie with Georgia peach ice cream. All of the restaurant’s ice creams are artisanal products made locally by High Road Craft Ice Cream with many local and environmentally friendly ingredients.
Kaets Steakhouse also offers signature popsicles – a coconut lemon grass popsicle and a dark chocolate and sea salt popsicle – made by King of Pops, a local company that strives to provide fresh ecologically responsible, all-natural frozen treats.
“Kaets Steakhouse is a Southern style steakhouse that offers traditional steakhouse cuisine with a distinctive Southern flair,” said Tony Squillante, the Sonesta Gwinnett Place director of operations. “We also place a strong emphasis on organic and locally sourced seasonal ingredients that are sustainable.”
The new steakhouse opened in June replacing JW’s Steakhouse within Sonesta Gwinnett Place, located at 1775 Pleasant Hill Rd. in Duluth, GA. For reservations call 770-923-1775 or visit
