Chez Josephine
This sexy midtown bistro is brought to us by Jean-Claude Baker, adoptive son of the eponymous Josephine-—the 1920s dancer who scandalized Paris with her banana-ornamented G-string. Pictures of the “Black Pearl” hang on the scarlet walls, and tinsel drips from the blue tin ceiling. Food ranges from culinary relics like a succulent duck à l’orange to Southern American dishes (crisp-skinned fried chicken). The restaurant’s location translates to a hopping pre- and posttheater crowd—join them for La Délice Josephine, a superbly smooth flourless chocolate cake, after the curtain falls.
