Hudson in 1905: Part 59

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

RALEIGH DINING ROOM--No. 520 Warren street. There is no more up-to-date restaurant in the city than the one conducted by Mr. A. N. David, and popularly designated as the Raleigh Dining Room. Mr. David has been established in the business here for the past three months only, during which short period he has succeeded in building up a large, profitable and enduring patronage. The restaurant is centrally located, has a capacity for seventy-five people, and is fitted up in an elegant and inviting manner. All dishes are prepared with skill and in accordance with the best methods known to the culinary arts, and that, too, from the freshest foodstuffs that the market affords. Oysters are served in every style, as well as steaks, chops, fish, vegetables, and a long line of miscellaneous dishes. Mr. David has had twenty-five years' experience as a caterer, and is thoroughly competent. Meals are served at all hours, and American, French and Italian cooking may be ordered. The Raleigh Dining Room is known as a cool, cozy, respectable place for ladies and gentlemen to assemble and partake of the finest and most delicately prepared eatables to be found in the city. Special attention given to wedding receptions and parties.

520 Warren Street today--City Hall
Gossips Note: The bank building that is now City Hall was built in 1907. The building that preceded it at that address and would have been the location of the Raleigh Dining Room can be seen at the right in this picture of Baker Row--the four houses just west of City Hall--found in the Hudson directory for 1905.
