A new French restaurant is bound for Kenmore Square. Josephine, Restaurant Parisien is slated to open in late March at the current Petit Robert Bistro space (468 Commonwealth Ave. at Kenmore Street), serving contemporary French cuisine and an Old World-style wine selection. Owner Samuel Gosselin, who spent part of his childhood in France, says he hopes that diners consider his restaurant “a little bit of the River Seine on the Charles.” Opening executive Chef Stefano Quaresima hails from Petit Robert’s South End branch.
