89. Theme 296 ~Tables~
These tables are located in the most wonderful French restaurant, ‘CHEZ JOSEPHINE‘ in NYC. The food is fabulous, the service outstanding and the ambiance is delightful…..it’s like having dinner in a tiny jewel box. Chez Josephine was opened by the charming and handsome Jean-Claude Baker as a tribute to his late mother, American-born Paris sensation Josephine Baker, a multi-talented singer, actress and comedienne of the 1920’s and beyond, who was WAY ahead of her time. You can hear her performing “Haiti” from the 1934 film, ZOU ZOU, HERE or HERE for footage of her performing ‘The Plantation’ recorded at the Folies Bergères, Paris, in 1927. Chez Josephine is located at 414 West 42nd Street. If you’re ever in the City, don’t pass up the opportunity to dine there…….it’s an amazing experience! Thanks Jean-Claude!
