The Quicken Payee becomes the GnuCash transaction "Description".

You could run a Transaction report (from the Chart of Accounts view, click
on Reports -> Transaction Report).  From there you could set it up to
sort by Description.

But in general this kind of functionality hasn't been highly requested.
People tend to care more about what they spend their money on, not
where they spend their money.  For example, does it really matter whether
you buy groceries at Stop and Shop or Publix?
