Michael Bonacini

Celebrity Chef Michael Bonacini is the co-founder of one of Canada’s leading fine dining restaurant companies, Oliver & Bonacini Restaurants, operating 11 unique and innovative restaurants in Ontario. Bonacini trained classically under Chef Anton Mosimann at London’s Dorchester Hotel, before immigrating to Canada in 1985 and partnering with veteran restaurateur Peter Oliver in 1993.

His first restaurant collaboration with Oliver was a New York style bistro named Jump. Nineteen years later, their operations have grown to include à la carte dining, quick service, catering, group dining, and special events, as well as an artisan bakery and chocolate shop. Bonacini credits its success to the development of a strong corporate culture, where excellence of food quality and service are valued above all else.
