Norsan Restaurants on Monday unveiled plans for H&W Steakhouse, a new upscale restaurant slated to debut in early-2021. H&W Steakhouse will replace Black Walnut Cafe in Peachtree Corners, at 5242 Peachtree Pkwy. Black Walnut Cafe closed its doors in late-2019 when the company left Georgia entirely.
Leading the culinary team at H&W Steakhouse will be Executive Chef Charles Schwab, who was most recently the executive chef at Buckhead Diner and has also previously worked with concepts Blue Ridge Grill, Bacchanalia, and Grace 17.20. “I am so excited to be part of the Norsan Group and I am very much looking forward to our new venture together in Peachtree Corners,” Schwab said in a prepared statement. “I can think of no better concept to bring to this bustling area than a great American steakhouse. Moving forward with the support of our own meat distribution company Prime Meats, Frankie’s and Pampas, not to mention over 35 years of proudly serving the Atlanta community, will be truly groundbreaking.”
H&W’s parent company, Norsan, is a privately-owned group that has operated in the Atlanta
area for over 33 years. Norsan’s restaurant brands include Frankie’s the Steakhouse, Pampas Steakhouse, Luciano’s Ristorante, Frontera Mex-Mex Grill, and La Capital Cocina Mexicana. The restaurant plans to carry Prime Grade, Black Angus, and Corn Fed steaks from Norsan’s very own boutique USDA meatpacking and distribution company, Prime Meats.
“This concept will breathe new life into the traditional steakhouse and bring the best steaks in the U.S handpicked daily from our master butchers to our guests’ plates,” Norberto Sanchez, Norsan’s Founder and CEO, said.
