    Chef Rob Shaner

    Chef Rob Shaner first became enamored with cooking while living in France as a teenager. He formally began his career after attending The French Culinary Institute in New York City. Rob worked his way through restaurants around New York and Massachusetts before moving to Chicago about seven years ago.

    He worked as the Executive Chef at Homestead and Royal Grocer before landing at The Kennison. Rob lives in Oak Park with his 5-year-old daughter and is excited to strengthen The Kennison's reputation as the best neighborhood restaurant in Lincoln Park.
