Renowned Chef Bonner Cameron joined family-owned restaurant Petit & Keet in Little Rock earlier this year, bringing with him a one-of-a-kind culinary style and dedication to creating the highest quality modern American cuisine.
Chef Bonner, along with the Petit & Keet team, launched the restaurant’s summer menu earlier this week, with Bonner putting his spin on several signature favorites and introducing a few new seasonal dishes.
“We have searched for the perfect chef who will continue the outstanding tradition that led to Petit and Keet being voted Best Restaurant in Arkansas multiple times since we opened in 2018 and featured as one of the Top 100 Wine Restaurants in the country by Wine Enthusiast Magazine,” stated Owner of JTJ Restaurants LLC, Jim Keet.
Petit & Keet’s managing partners, Brent Lenners, Tommy Keet and Jake Keet, shared the same enthusiasm.
“Chef Bonner’s culinary prowess, combined with his years of experience, along with his background, talent, creativity and passion for outstanding cuisine made him the perfect choice. He has taken a talented and seasoned staff and immediately encouraged them to operate at a higher level. We are excited to have him leading our culinary team.”
Chef Bonner has been a local favorite throughout the community since moving to Arkansas over 12 years ago. He trained at The Art Institute of Houston and quickly became a sought-after chef while working in the area at multiple upscale eateries. Since moving to the Natural State in 2011, he’s worked as an executive chef at multiple beloved restaurants. He quickly fell in love with the Arkansas community, becoming heavily involved with fundraising events including the annual Pulaski Tech Diamond Chef competition which he competes every year.
