As forthcoming French restaurant Josephine prepares to opens, bits and pieces of the owner Samuel Gosselin's vision pop up on social media. Yesterday, Boston got a peek at the banquettes in the same hue as the restaurant's logo and menu covers.
Along with sharing snippet of the interiors, Gosselin also spoke with Boston Magazine yesterday. He explains the limited menu and choices for the wine list:
"People will see that the menu doesn’t have that many items, but I want each dish to be unique and a very interesting experience," Gosselin says. "I like quality, not quantity. As far as the wine goes, I’m starting off with about 50 labels that pair properly with Stefano’s food. To pull that off, I looked toward great restaurants like Barcelona, which mostly has Spanish wine, or Coppa that is focused on Italian wine. I think Boston will appreciate a restaurant where you can come in and choose from Burgundy, Beaujolais, Bordeaux, Jura, Provence, Loire Valley, and Cotes du Rhone. We’ll showcase the wide variety of wines that France can offer."
Gosselin doesn't reveal an opening date, but according to Facebook, it should be any day now.
