Josephine Restaurant Review: This is a love story between a man and a bakery. After 22 years in the mill trade, Jean-François Celbert recreated the artisanal bakery of his dreams and named it Joséphine, after his Breton grandmother. It serves breakfast and lunch (for dining on-site or to go), and is a good spot for afternoon tea or a glass of white wine at the end of the day. The lunch menus change every day and might include veal blanquette, navarin of lamb, stuffed tomatoes, and also steak tartare and salade Niçoise. Joséphine serves butter and cheese from the authentic craftsman Jean-Yves Bordier. This is essentially an elegant bakery and grocery that’s also a cozy, welcoming place to spend a nice moment enjoying products and dishes that follow the seasons. The atmosphere is somewhat reminiscent of Shakespeare and Company, the bookstore near Notre Dame, where all kinds of people used to go, from writers like Henry Miller and Ernest Hemingway to unknown people. These types of places take all your stress away and make you feel comfortable.
