Bonjour

Les Amis

Welcome to Josephine, an everyday French brasserie and bar located in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. Inspired by classic Parisian eateries, Josephine brings the timeless charm and culinary traditions of France to the neighborhood.

The menu, lovingly crafted by Chef Matt Cockrell, combines classic, time-honored dishes that include a broad range of salads, appetizers, and entrees along with an extensive raw bar. The cuisine is complemented by a stellar selection of Champagne, old world wines, cocktails and craft ales. 

Whether it’s a quick aperitif at the bar, an intimate rendezvous in the atrium or a sumptuous and celebratory meal with friends and family, Josephine combines the cinematic grandeur of a timeless café with the spirit and warmth of a refreshingly unpretentious and altogether delicious neighborhood eatery.  

 

Our hidden bar and lounge at the top of the stairs of Josephine is the perfect hideaway for champagne and cocktail lovers alike. Bar Jo boasts a menu of wine and spirits accompanied by small bites great for soaking up sparklers of all kinds. Join us for an unforgettable experience and keep an eye on the calendar for exclusive classes and events!

The multi-leveled space is sumptuous, warm and transporting - with antique millwork, vintage lighting (including pendants that once hung in the Paris Metro), a large atrium dining room overhung by a vaulted skylight, one of Old Town’s classic bars, a third-floor hideaway lounge and champagne bar (complete with fireplace), and an intimate courtyard seating 25, Josephine has space and setting for every occasion. 

 

We hope you’ll join us at Josephine to experience the flavors of France and indulge in the simple pleasures and comforts of a classic French Brasserie - right here at home.
