Boris Bistro is a few blocks from the basilica. We enjoyed poutine, the Canadian national food. Also the mojito Boris was really wonderful. Service was also very good.

The food was very good. I had a salad with lardons and greens. Husband had lamb. We ordered two glasses of Chardonnay. Very small serving for 14.00 each, and nothing to rave about, so we ordered a bottle of Italian wine that was good.
