Boris Bistro

Notable for its mixture of classic French and Italian cuisine, Boris Bistro offers up an exciting and delicious menu in a classic dining environment. In the summertime, enjoy your meal on their beautiful outside terrace. This is a great place to bring colleagues, friends, or family, and its tasty delicacies will no doubt bring you to culinary ecstasy.

Situated between two large office buildings in Montreal’s historic district, Boris Bistro is less a conventional store-front restaurant and more of an open terrace for summer-loving young professionals to enjoy. With the patio terrace housed in the hollowed-out facade of an old building destroyed by a fire, the since-renovated Bistro offers one of the coolest atmospheres to be found in the city. The menu is full of rich items like an endive, beets, walnut, and blue cheese salad, perfect for that light and sunny afternoon lunch in Old Montreal. With mains including Steak Tartare, Duck Risotto, and Mahi Mahi, the variety is there for anyone looking to add a little more flavour to what they typically savour.

Fans of classic fare should try Boris Bistro’s French Fries served with Boris’ own mayonnaise. The famous fries are soaked in duck fat which is enough to make them stand out as one of the more notable choices on the menu. Lovers of classic French cuisine should be satisfied with the duck breast or bison fillet options. With $25-30 being a reasonable price for the average entree here, Boris Bistro takes outdoor dining to exciting new levels. Boris Bistro, 465 McGill Street, Montreal, 514-848-9575.
