Hudson in 1905: Part 50

The following is an excerpt from the booklet Illustrated Hudson, N.Y., published in 1905.

THE LENOX RESTAURANT--R. Ryan, proprietor. No. 703 Warren street. The inner man is a most essential part of the human make-up, and as the saying goes, "he must be fed," for which very laudable purpose there is no better place in town than the "Lenox Restaurant." Here all meals are served with the utmost decorum and cleanliness, and with such active and attentive service on the part of the employees that no patron ever closed the doors of the place on his back without a ticklish feeling of sheer delight and satisfaction. The Lenox has been established for about four years, and has succeeded in securing one of the best and highest class trades in the city. Meals are served at all hours, with regular dinners at the price of twenty-five cents. Special rates are made for the benefit of steady boarders, meal cards, etc., being sold. The proprietor, Mr. Ryan, is a native resident of Hudson.

  1. Thanks Carole. That's very interesting! 25 cents for dinner! Have you researched even further back in time?
