When I was in my Dawson’s Creek days, Josephine was my top name if I had a daughter. I love regal, historical-sounding names. I still do. The having kids part, not so much. Maybe when I get a dog, I can use this lovely name.
This hip restaurant Josephine Estelle is located in the even hipper Ace Hotel. There’s so much to the space, you feel like you should spend the whole day in the hotel checking out all the details. Alongside the restaurant, is Stumptown Coffee Roasters and a rooftop pool. So much going on! Definitely worthy of a staycation or an adult Eloise at the Plaza adventure.
