18 Wellington Street West, Toronto


Where do you go when all the kitchens around the Fairmont Royal York (including the Fairmont) are closed?  JUMP! That’s where.

A hotspot for the Bay Street crowd, and quite hidden on Wellington, within the Commerce Court building, it was just the place for us to grab a late night bite (and by late night, I’m talking only 10pm – shame on you, Toronto).

What a great find!  It was the perfect setting for a celebratory dinner, as we scored a quiet corner in a separate dining area away from the noisy crowd, and received the full attention of our rather surly-faced but competent server.


We were presented with the late-night menu, which was still quite extensive, but it didn’t take long for us to decide on the duck poutine and crab cakes.  Nom nom nom!

The appies

Crab Cakes

I still dream about that Duck Confit and Maple Smoked Cheddar Poutine $7.95 (Yukon Gold, sweet potato fries and cranberry gravy) – it was divine.


Hot Smoked Chicken Breast – cheddar scallopped potatoes and grilled asparagus $26.50. Blander than the poutine, but still good.

I can’t recall what the dessert was exactly, but it was miniature and chocolatey and just the perfect amount of dessert.


Jump is another one of Oliver & Bonacini’s pets and it was a nice surprise especially in that area.  It’s certainly better than the overrated Beer Bistro.

  1. I went for a Winterlicious Lunch and it was quite tasty! Only confusion was my friend who came up from the subway underground path and was like, “I can see it! but how do I get in there??”
