Ooh La La Chez Josephine

So the other Sunday after I visited The Museum of Broadway (see under the Culture tag) I joined the group that I went with at the Chez Josephine restaurant which is located at 414 West 42nd Street.

Chez Josephine was the brain child of Jean-Claude Baker from Burgundy who named his restaurant after his adoptive mother, Josephine Baker. Josephine Baker (born Freda Josephine McDonald; naturalised French Josephine Baker was an American born French dancer, singer and actress. Her career was primarily in Europe, mostly in her adopted France. In 1027 she was the first black woman to star in a major motion picture (silent film) Siren of the Tropics. She also became active in the Civil Right Movement and adopted 12 children from around the globe wanting to establish a “rainbow tribe” showcasing a living demonstration of unity.

Here are 2 photos of Josephine as they decorate the restaurant.

Here is the bar area as well as the dining area.

So this meal was pre-selected by the group that organized the event that included the visit to The Museum of Broadway.

So I decided on Mesclun Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette(on the side)!

Then I decided on the Poached Sole with Vegetable Couscous, and Lobster Emulsion.

And the dessert which I absolutely adored which was Bobe Glacee Pralinee. So great!

So if you’re in the theatre district or more specifically on Theatre Row and want to transport yourself to Paris…then definitely check out Chez Josephine. It was wonderful!
