We happened upon Boris Bistro today looking for a late breakfast on Notre Dame (not much going at 3pm on Sunday). The terrace was lovely and the espressos were quick to arrive and quite decent. I had a chiruso (sp?), shrimp and roasted pepper fricasse and my love had the pasta Jonas (called pasta Nathan in the english menu--strange translation). We felt the food was quite tasty--better in fact than the meal we ate at Liverpool house recently....and the bill was a mere 30 bucks (!!)
My question is "why the hate??" most of the reviews from chowhounds have been terrible. Is the smoking affecting my taste buds? Have you guys really had such bad food there? Do tell because I plan on going back and want to know what to avoid.
