A word from 100 Steps Supper Club + Raw Bar
In the midwest, "supper club" means a spot where you can not only have a great meal, but a spot that functions as a bit of a social club too - a place to enjoy remarkable food + great company. One of our favorite parts of the night has been watching our customers interact - running into neighbors and friends, meeting up with family, or just enjoying a night out together - it's our own little social club. So we figured what could be more apt than calling ourselves the 100 Steps Supper Club.

The "raw bar" side - well that comes from wanting a nice, traditional oyster bar to belly up to and dive into raw oysters, clams, and other great seafood.

The two meet in our new spot, 100 Steps Supper Club + Raw Bar - welcome!

100 Steps is the sister restaurant of A Toute Heure.

Sautéed shrimp, tomato, smoked paprika + cilantro butter, arugula, grilled sourdough bread ------AMAZING!!!!!!!! We all agreed that this dish was our favorite of the night!

    My first review I noted the food was too spicy. This time, they got it just right. Had a great meal. Super fresh and delicious raw bar. Small plates were great for sharing in our 4 person party. They could be a little ore forthcoming with the bread (on both dining occasions, we had to ask for some), but it was only to sop up the sauces of our dishes. That good! The owner is personable and comes around to each table, which is a nice touch.

    We looked forward to dining at this restaurant. Our friends from NY met us in town. Nothing special about this place. We enjoyed ourselves at the Sister restaurant A Tourte heure many times. When we finished dinner at ATH our friends from NY clapped. Here they just were waiting to leave town. Don't get me wrong, some of the dishes were good. Others lacked presentation and delivery. Well thank you for reading this far.

    Dined on 9/4/2014
    I had been to this restaurant about a month ago and thought it was great. Very disappointed this time -- oysters were rubbery and not fresh. Chocolate cake was stale and the cobbler was like eating fruit preserves out of a jar --- not appealing at all. Cheese board was a hunk of buffalo mozzarella cheese with one thin slice of proscuitto --- not appetizing. Waitress was overwhelming -- basically read items off the menu as though they were specials. Too much information. Wouldn't go back again and won't recommend it to a friend.

    My girlfriend and I had an awesome dining experience at 100 Steps. The manager was incredibly friendly and personable and we felt like we were being taken care of as soon as we walked in. Our server Melony was fun, helpful, and on point with everything. The oysters were delicious. We can't wait to go back. 100 Steps and it's sister restaurant A Toute Heure are serious heavy hitters.

    Delightful meal. The 3 of us arrived as Happy Hour was ending; shared 1-1/2 dozen oysters on the half shell. We then shared 4 plates; blistered Shisito Peppers w/goat cheese (my favorite), fried Okra with smokey roasted tomatoes & buttermilk dipping sauce; Scallop Crudo - SO good and the spicy fried crawfish tails w/chili aioli. Then ordered two bowls of Pici Pasta w/Duck Ragu, soaking up the broth w/focaccia. Desserts were Coffee Gelato, Summer Cobbler and Cheesecake with Blueberry-Toffee sauce. Everything well prepared and delicious. We loved eating in this manner, it's a fun way to have a meal. Service was a bit slow out of the kitchen, but very friendly and professional. we appreciated the BYOB. Looking forward to a return visit.

    Another fine meal at 100 Steps. Went with my wife and daughter, who appreciate being able to sample a variety of dishes without overeating. Food was consistently very good and portions were nicely sized. Outstanding service. Can be noisy on weekends, but this mid-week evening had a busy (but not deafening) hum. A favorite.

    The casual open feeling of the restaurant works perfectly with the concept of small plates. The food is very good. We did not have the Oysters. We went with the appetizer and main plates. The plates are small more in line with Tapas style dining. I don't eat allot so it was perfect for me. It would be better if the main plates were a bit larger. I can also highly recommend the owners other resturant Au Toute Heure.

    Food was well presented and quite imaginative. Staff was well versed in explaining the dishes. The owner was very involved with greeting and talking with customers and making sure they were satisfied. All in all, a very pleasant dining experience. A place to drop in to just to have a small bite of amazingly good pasta filled with taleggio.

The owner came by our table on several occasions to make sure we were happy. And the food...it was terrific. My wife and I enjoyed the challenge of selecting our plate choices from a great variety. We were very pleased with our selections and can't wait to return to try other plates.

    Thoughtful, well executed small (ish) plates. Pasta is homemade, the fish plates were cooked perfectly and the vegetables were fresh and local. Loved my octopus though slightly over salted. Clams and linguini were bright and lemony. Loved tasting everything we ordered. 1 appetizer, 4 plates and 1 dessert - was more than enough. A bright spot in the culinary doldrums of suburbia!

    everything we had from the raw bar was fresh and clean and delicious. all the dishes, both appetizers and mains were creative and very tasty. all dishes are meant to be shred a la tapas but the main dishes are definitely sufficient to be eaten by one person as their entree. though i mention tapas it is not Spanish cuisine. the focus i more on seafood and pastas.

    A big fan of 100 Steps and A Toute Heure. I find the food to be hit or miss but I think that is just a part of the tapas experience. I appreciate how inventive and experimental the chef is but the result is that some dishes are a bit off. I loved fried clam belly, octopus was incredibly tender but I found the squash blossoms to be a bit strange paired with a basil panna cotta. And the smoked chocolate mousse was not good at all--the milk jam sorbet seemed very bizarre. Unfortunately it just didn't taste good. Still love the place though and will be back.

    We enjoyed our first visit to 100 Steps. The food was overall solid (leaned a little towards the spicy side, which perhaps could have been our orders - but someone who likes a "kick" to their food would love it). Oysters were fresh and tasty. Love having a local raw bar that is a BYOB - bill was very reasonable! Will be back...this makes a nice addition to the restaurant scene in Cranford and the surrounding area.

Everything was amazing- Including a strawberry upside down dessert with basil gelato. The service was well paced and attentive. The owner came by to thank us for visiting- It was our first visit but definitely won't be our last!

    We ate at 100 Steps last nite. Aside from the unacceptable noise level, the menu was hard to navigate. Our cheese plates were TINY TINY portions of "eh" cheese with TINY pieces of stale bread. We ordered meatballs and some mushroom glop as small plates and they were seriously mediocre to bad. Our entrees were very average. I will say that dessert was very good. Prices are average and it is BYO. I would urge anyone who wants to have a really nice dining experience (including conversation with table companions) to boycott places like this.

    As charter patrons of A Toute Heure we looked forward to our first visit to 100 Steps and we weren't disappointed. The clams and oysters were cold, fresh and delicious. The fried clam belly po'boy a tasty treat as were the baked oysters and steamers.Our waitress, Melanie, was helpful and considerate. At Happy Hour, the noise level was down, adding to the restaurant's clean, sharp. modern design. Andrea's coming over to chat and say hello was a very pleasant personal touch.

    I went to the restaurant with my family to celebrate an upcoming birthday. We were seated in a small corner in the restaurant, which although nice, was very cramped. The service was excellent, and the food was very good. Our only complaint would be that the restaurant once crowded, became extremely loud due to the fact that people were yelling over each other and the music.-
