At least it did on our recent visit. This is a fine dining restaurant in a restored historic bungalow on one of Flagstaff’s main thoroughfares. The dinner menu has limited, but ambitious small plates, soups and side salads, and entrees. Our three-chili hummus platter with smoked paprika oil and pico de gallo and chips was as described. The cornmeal-dusted calamari with spicy remoulade and sweet chili was decent. Servings were generous and nicely-plated. The champagne vinaigrette this night was almost all vinegar and unfortunately overpowered the fresh ingredients on two salads. The crab cakes entrée with quinoa/sesame/masa cake and avocado tomatillo sauce was bland. The filet (mignon) medallions were perfectly deep pink as ordered but had no taste; the accompanying risotto was perfect. The pork osso buco with polenta was the dish with some noticeable seasoning. Service was attentive and friendly. Wine and beer choices are as expected at a “white tablecloth” restaurant. We probably will give Josephine’s another try.
