Welcome to Josephine, a French inspired 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 local dining scene.

In addition to a full range of salads, appetizers and entrees, Josephine’s menu features an extensive raw bar offering as well as an expertly curated cheese list devoted exclusively to French offerings.

Josephine’s beverage program is anchored by a collection of more than 350 French wines that encompasses both traditional and modern winemaking styles as well as a deep list of reserve offerings and large format bottles. There will be no fewer than 30 wines available by the glass, with a special focus on grower Champagnes.
In addition to wine offerings, Josephine’s beverage program includes an impressive selection of housemade cocktails. Inventive aperitif cocktails and classic riffs will be on hand along with full Martini service and a traditional Ramos Gin Fizz. A focused selection of draft and bottled beer and cider rounds out the beverage program, leaning local, French and Belgian.
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.
