On February 11 1900, if you were a bit peckish and happened to be around one of their two locations, you could step into the restaurant Au Chat Noir and have a little something.  This is the cover of the table d'hote (also called prix fixe) menu.  Want to see what you could have?  Here.

Can't quite read this? (I can't either.) If you're curious, NYPL.org has a breakdown of what's on offer here.  Look.
