Boris does not have a pinch of Russian in him, at least not when it comes to the restaurant. The style is very French bistro of the “dark wood, no-brass” type. And very friendly. They have a quite good selection of wine, but not enough to make them a dedicated wine buff destination, and a good selection of wines by the glass, from the region (Languedoc), the top one being Mas de l’Ecriture.
The food is cafe-bistro style with a penchant for Aubrac meat (yummy!). Don’t go here if you’re looking for salads or pasta. And it is certainly well made. Medium-high price range. A very good address for a good straight forward dinner. And a wonderful terrasse in season at the Boulevard Sarrail location.
Chez Boris, two locations: 17 Boulevard Sarrail, on the Esplanade next to Place de la Comedie, ph 04 67 02 82 38; and 20 rue de l’Aiguillerie, next to Préfecture, ph 04 67 02 13 22, 34000 Montpellier, www.chezboris.com
