At Jean-Claude Baker’s lively homage to his adopted mother, Josephine Baker, the welcome’s so warm, it feels like a homecoming, and the piano is live every night. Bistro standbys—Escargots à la Bourguignonne, deftly cooked salmon—are good enough. Southern fried chicken is fabulous, and le délice Josephine delivers paradise in chocolate.
