A Kenmore Square restaurant known for serving Parisian fare has closed its doors after only a year in business. Josephine shut down at 468 Commonwealth Ave., according to Boston Restaurant Talk, cutting off the neighborhood’s supply of steak frites, assorted cheeses, and crème brûlée.
Josephine served classic French dishes, including everything from escargots and moules marinières to croque monsieur and braised beef bourguignon. The restaurant opened last year in the space that was formerly occupied by Petit Robert Bistro. Owner Samuel Gosselin told Eater at the time that his goal was to create a restaurant "where people are really focusing on quality of food and bringing a nice, warm atmosphere around what they like — which is food and wine."
