A little France’s Flavor in New York

May 8, 2011

Josephine Baker lived in Paris, but never forgot America was her first home.  “J’ai deux amours: To loves have I, My Country and Paris” was her signature song. Now her timeless spirit and joie de vivre invite you to share what, since 1986, has been our two loves, good friends and great food.

Chez Josephine is a pioneer in the revival of 42nd street since 1986, is a bubbly return to the joie de vivre of Paris of the 1930’s: le Jazz Hot with soul.

A tribute to Josephine Baker, the restaurant and its live music exude theatrical panache. Recently remodeled, now with a private party room, this landmark jewel is even more inviting and romantic with its blue-tin ceiling red velvet walls, and cavalcade of chandeliers which light up the vintage portraits of La Baker. The eclectic menu reivents the traditional cuisine of the French bistro in an explosion of tantalizing flavors.

Ideally located in the heart of the theater district, Chez Josephine is a magnet for pre theater dining.At anytime, including hollidays, you can experience what owner and host Jean-Claude Baker calls his “coktail of human beings” a medley of celebrities, local color, and a loyal and devoted following from all over the world.

The kitchen remains open until 1:00 am making this spot the unforgettable end to an evening on the town. A warm welcome from Jean-Claude and his brother, Jarry Baker, and a delicated staff is guaranteed.
