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.

Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated my wife's birthday dinner at 100 Steps and it was excellent. Our server was very helpful and all the food was superb. Like ATH, this is a wonderful addition to the area."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The genius's behind A Toute Heure have done it again! Have the fried clam belly sandwich, crawfish tails, and pasta with duck ragu. Yum!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "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."

  • "confusing to order. portions small and really not for sharing like they suggested. Strange food choices. Pasta selection way too hot with red pepper."

  • "We leave here more then satisfied every time we eat here!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "I have not had a meal that good in a long time. The food was fantastic and the service outstanding. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the plates and offered great recommendations. Very friendly atmosphere. Our new favorite place to eat."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "...From beginning to end. Food was just absolutely amazing. Un-rushed. Seamless service. Our server (Jessica) was extremely knowledgeable with the menu and patiently explained how the food would be served. An great gastronomic experience!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Love this restaurant. The seafood is amazing. Didn't' think Shrimp Cocktail could taste so good, but it does here. Love that it's all small plates, so you can try lots of things."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner at this quaint BYO. We had a bunch of fresh, delicious oysters. The ceviche was smoky and crisp. We had octopus that we cut with a fork! 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!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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. We'll definitely return. Barbara&Sheldon Roskin Scotch Plains,NJ"

  • "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.-"

  • "My husband and I had a wonderful dining experience at 100 Steps. We enjoyed every item we ate. Chef Kara is outstanding! "

  • "We really enjoy that the menu is always changing. The portions are just enough and the combinations are incredible."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The food was excellent, just like ATH across the street. However, the oysters seemed a bit pricey. I am not the biggest fan of tapas either. Always seems like I order 1 too many or 1 too few dishes."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Wonderful place for a romantic dinner. The service is above outstanding... never had to wait for anything or look for our waitress. The cheese board and salumi board are excellent starters. The plates are on the smaller side so you can try several different options. The beef and chorizo meatballs were delicious. This was my second visit and I cannot wait to go back."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The Service is impecable! The atmosphere makes you feel like you traveled to NYC! The Oysters were Amazing!!! Love the fact that there are so many choices to choose from for Oysters and the staff are very knowledgable about each type! We enjoyed selecting several different types and having a taste test ~ all delicious! Small plates are great for sharing which they encourage you to do! Truly enjoyed our dinner at 100 steps and luckily its in the town we live it so I am sure we will be back again and again!"

  • "We tried this Centennial Village Star last Friday Night. The food was wonderful and the decor/ambiance amazing as well. The owner was kind enough to come over and introduce himself and explain the restaurant's tapas menu and approach. The service was on point and very attentive. We had the Seafood Tower to start- the oysters were amazing and the cerveche was out of this world. We moved on to the bream dish and also loved the shrimp ravioli. The two desserts were also really delicious. There are so many more dishes we want to try. We will be back. I can't wait!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Food was great! Our waitress was knowledgeable and sweet; we just felt a bit rushed as the meals came on top of each other and there was no room to put more than two dishes; as a result some good things still on the plates that were taken away (it was either that or they would have had to take the incoming meals back to the kitchen)."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "100 Steps is a great addition to the ATH family. Andrea and Jim have created another winner. This was our first visit at the new location after many at ATH. The location has more space and is nicely laid out. The food was fantastic as usual, but trying to get a bead on the portion size of the different offerings on the menu took some time. Our only complaint was that the background noise was a bit high. Our waitress had to lean in and shout for us to hear her, and conversation at the table was a bit difficult. Most of the noise was generated by the background music, so it could and should be lowered just a bit!"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "The raw bar is worth the price of admission and both shellfish based entrees were delicious. BYOB helps, too."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our first visit to 100 Steps Supper Club + Raw Bar this past Saturday with another couple. Service was very efficient and friendly. Space was open and energetic. The owner was very gracious and came over 2x times to see how we were doing throughout our meal. The menu was interesting and absolutely delicious. Also love that is is BYOB. "

  • "I am a longtime patron of their sister restaurant, A Toute Heure. Love 100 steps just as much!"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "We ordered a cheese board number two, solumi board and seafood tower. Both boards were delicious with the assorted bread basket, chicory greens and pesto. The seafood tower had oysters which were divine, clams very fresh and sweet, but the shrimp were small and a little over cooked. Comparing this tower to another seafood establishment, where the tower is about the same price, with similar shellfish, the lobster and crab were better at the other restaurant. 100 Steps deserves another try at a later date."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "You never get a bad mean here. Everything is always on point and super flavorful!"
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "I wasn't sure what to expect when I made the reservations. I had eaten at A Toute Heure a few times and love the place. Decided to try this out. Outstanding! it was such a cool place to go for dinner with my husband. We had an awesome corner table. I loved that it was more of a tapas type of place rather than a restaurant type menu. The waiter was terrific in helping us decide our plates for the evening. I highly recommend this place!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Had 7:30 reservation and it was almost full. The room certainly holds the noise well. You could not hold a conversation with your tablemates without a lot of "What did you say" s . It was a little better later on when there were fewer diners. The food itself was wonderful. I would go back but either earlier or later."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "We shared five different selections, all of which were very good. The waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable. The only knock is in the size of the portions. Not a place for big eaters, although with the tasty bread I was able to soak up the sauces and satisfy my hunger."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I have always been a fan of Au Taute Heurre, but I think I like their new restaurant even better. The quality and freshness of the food stands up to the reputation of ATH. I love the small plates on the menu so I can try a number of dishes and the variety in the menu is excellent. Service was excellent and the ambience as well. If I had any complaint at all, it would be that it was quite loud. But that will not deter me from going there as often as possible."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "It's obvious that the attention to detail in everything from wait staff to food preparation that there are very high standards in place and that the goal is to exceed expectations from the moment you enter until leaving. Four of us ordered a variety of small plates that ended with 2 pastas. We thoroughly enjoyed every dish with the exception of the olives. The staff knew how to bring them out and pace the meal so that we could enjoy the food and each other in total harmony. Can't say enough about the food, the touch of squid ink on the tuna plate was perfect. Precise and exquisite food preparation can become pretentious but not here. This team works so well together that it's hard to resist."

  • "Cranford has a new sheriff in town and he's only 100 steps away. Seafood tower is not only reminiscent of a Parisian bistro but priced superbly. Highest quality shellfish alongside delicious ceviche and crudo. Cheeseboard is also outstanding with excellent domestic offerings. Pasta dishes weren't at the level I thought the rest of the menu was achieving. This small criticism was shared with the waiter and he passed it along to the owner who immediately asked for feedback. Total graciousness and class. This is what great restaurants do. 100 steps is an outstanding choice which along with a toute heure can easily make the claim as best restaurant in Cranford and surrounding towns."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Our party of four unanimously loved each and every selection we shared. Each dish was bursting with more flavor than the next. Looking forward to going back again soon!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Sharing plates adds to the fun of dining out, and 100 Steps encourages doing so with the tapas-style menu. When what you're sharing is so delicious, the enjoyment is multiplied--as is true with the dishes here. The staff is most cordial and knowledgeable--without "talking down" to the customers. The owner is gracious and sincere in checking with the customers. The decor and lighting support the festive experience. We really enjoyed our meal, will be back, and will bring family and friends. Definitely recommend."

  • "Its got three of my favorite things...oysters, tapas and BYO. Great feeling inside, nice table options. Food was awesome, enjoyed every bite. Prices a bit expensive, which we are usually willing to pay but, the cheese and cured meets were very expensive, which stopped me from ordering them...and I never do. Wait staff was pleasant, could tell they were new but had no issues. Would come back again definitely. Try to go before its impossible to get in, like their sister place across the street at ATH."

  • "Ok. I am not going to overhype this resto so I can keep it to myself. Hope off the Parkway and give it to this woman whom I am happy to sponsor myself. She's got Cordon Bleu creds from the Us of York and I would like to officially be a groupie. She can take this to the top and then some. fresh, precise, modern and 'the best of jersey'. comfort with a capital C."

  • "My wife and I found all the dishes we had to be very good, and a few to be great. The "small plate" style really allowed us to explore more options than we normally could. Highly recommended."

  • "100 steps was amazing! The oysters were fantastic! We had fun trying them and they were all very good. We love eating at tapas style restaurants. No overeating, but lots of tasting! Highly recommend 100 Steps!"
