About Chez Josephine
Chez Josephine is a bubbly return to the joie-de-vivre of Paris of the 1930s – le Jazz Hot with soul.
A tribute to legendary entertainer Josephine Baker founded in 1986 by Jean-Claude Baker, Chez Josephine offers a French-American menu and live piano music in an intimate Parisian setting.
This landmark jewel is inviting and romantic with its blue-tin ceiling, red velvet walls and cavalcade of chandeliers that light up vintage portraits of La Baker.
Ideally located on West 42nd Street along Theatre Row, Chez Josephine is a magnet for dining before or after the theater; as well as a Hell’s Kitchen haven for a leisurely dinner or quick drink at the zinc bar.
