Eat Robson is a new dining series spotlighting different restaurants along Robson Street, to give you a behind the scenes look into the kitchens and chefs that make our neighborhood so scrumptious. To kick things off, we chatted with head chef, Kevin Connaghan of Robson Milestones, whom along with his team, spent the last year reinventing Milestones? menu to reflect the restaurant’s?new cooking philosophy.
