Seafood

100 Steps Kitchen + Raw Bar is 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.

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 Kitchen + Raw Bar - welcome!

100 Steps is a BYO!

      Very good food. Decent service. The only strange thing about dinner was that the host attempted to seat us in the far corner of the bar, in front of a staff meeting--when the entire restaurant was basically empty. When I asked for another table, she had to think about it hard. I will never understand why restaurants do this kind of stuff, esp in the suburbs and esp since I am a VIP regular OpenTable diner. But, again, the food was very good. They should put clam chowder on the menu permanently--I'd go much more often if they did.

      Loved it- first time visiting after seeing it listed for a few years. Service and food were the best. Everything was so good. My favorite oysters, Cape May Salts, were on the menu. Such a plus. Seafood Cioppino was best I have had! So yummy scooping up the sauce with the Parker House roll. Others had Rabbit entree, Gnocchi app and Arugula and Chicory salad, which were so delicious. What a great meal with friends. Will definitely go back. Have all ready recommended to a few friends!

      100 Steps in Cranford is one of my favorite restaurants, hands down. The food is always amazing and perfectly prepared, the service is over the top, and Jack and his team always make you feel at home. And now that Chef Kara is back, the menu is even more inspired. I can't say enough about this place, and have referred at least a dozen people to 100 Steps, all of whom share my sentiments.

      We choose 100 steps to celebrate our anniversary but really use any excuse to dine there. The atmosphere is chic but still very relaxed and welcoming. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. They are knowledgeable and helpful with questions about the menu. Of course, the food is the reason you pick a restaurant, and 100 steps will not disappoint you. Every dinner we’ve had has been delicious and memorable, with ingredients that are inventively paired and prepared. We order oysters from the raw bar all the time and the Sea Bass I had this visit was mouthwatering. A restaurant with seafood this good and BYOB too, life can’t get much better.

      We've been regulars at 100 Steps since owner Jack Tagmouti took over. We usually go out with a group on New Year's eve, but not this year. 100S advertised a NYE prix fixe menu for $125.00/person -- no substitutions. We decided to give it a try and reserved a table for two for the six-course 8:30PM seating. The dining room was nicely decorated. We were shown to our favorite table and introduced to our server, Our bottle of Savignon Blanc and our homemade bottle of GSM were uncorked. We did not have to wait long for our first course (Lobster Bisque). Absolutely delicious...as was each course thereafter. Chef Cara Decker and her brigade deserved a standing ovation for creativity and execution. We offered to take any leftovers but, alas, there were none to be had. The restaurant was fully booked. Every seat was occupied. 100 Steps usually is a treat at any time, but this particular menu was outrageously outstanding. Service at times could have been a bit more attentive, but that seems to be the norm at most restaurants on NYE.

      Nice to have Kara Decker back behind the helm of the kitchen again. Great braised rabbit dish and always the freshest oysters. Just watch the portion size to price ratio as that must remain balanced to ensure value is still there. All our food was delicious and well executed. Can’t wait to come back
