Our Story

A Toute Heure has been a mainstay of Cranford, New Jersey since 2007. An early adopter of the farm to table movement, ATH is dedicated to supporting local purveyors and using only the freshest seasonal ingredients.

Under the ownership of husband and wife, Marco and Nathally Florio, the restaurant prides itself on being attentive to detail.  

Marco was born in Fraine, a small town in Abruzzo Italy, where his family owned a “forno”, or bakery/pizzeria. It was here where they made a living by milling grain and wheat, tended to the fields for wine harvest and cultivated the land to grow crops for each season. The forno was at the top of a hill so Marco’s father could get in his “cinquecento,” put the car in neutral and deliver bread to the local homes without ever turning the engine on. Marco remembers days of going to the family farm, past cows, goats and sheep. He would collect eggs, and while still warm, get them back in time to have his mother cook over the open fire – his own “farm to table.” What drives the Florio’s culinary desire is their cultural roots as well as their strong family values.

By participating in neighborhood events, working with local vendors and consistently doing the next right thing, A Toute Heure will be a part of the community for years to come.

Chef’s Tasting Menu

The chef would like the opportunity to cook for you. For a truly personal experience, let go of your traditional expectations of a meal in the suburbs by making a reservation for his six-course tasting menu. His overabundance of experience combined with his never ending commitment to creating one transcendent dish after another makes him a unique candidate for a chef’s tasting. The chef takes great pride in all of his work but his personalized menu will contain sumptuous dishes as well as one of a kind creations that will not appear on the a la carte menu. He is well versed in styles of cooking from all over the world which means you will never know what to expect. Combining unexpected cuisines and flavors is the norm. That being said, the focus at A Toute Heure will always be on what is in season, as well as obtaining ingredients from local purveyors.

The Chef’s Tasting Menus is $85 per person excluding tax and gratuity. Reservations for the Chef’s Tasting menu must be made at least 24 hours in advance over the phone at (908)-276-6600 or by e-mailing info@atouteheure.com. Please note any allergies or dietary restrictions, which the chef will use as a guide when creating your menu. As the Chef’s Tasting is specifically tailored to each guest, if you need to cancel your reservation with less than 24 hours’ notice, we will charge a cancellation fee of $50 per person.

 
The young chef, who was named the 2017 Rising Star Chef by the Garden State Culinary Arts Awards...uses “simple, relatable twists” to turn a dish around and make it attractive to local customers. “This restaurant, out of all of the ones I’ve worked in, really connects with its hometown of Cranford the most, its whole philosophy is to be a local neighborhood gem. We get a lot of people from Cranford who have come here for birthdays and celebrations, so there’s a lot of positive memories here.

Sea scallops from Barnegat Bay showed the kitchen at its height . . . it was another plate that neglected style nor substance . . . the chef and the Florio’s are not just worthy, they are world class.

It’s nice to see a restaurant that had a following continue its tradition with new management geared to building on the experience that came before. As the chef put it, “All we’re doing is making what was already good, better.

A crisp, pan fried bass, its flesh delicate and moist, dazzled on its bed of warm faro salad, chickpeas, fiddlehead ferns and a touch of beurre noisette. The Florio’s have breathed new life into ATH, as it’s called, while preserving key elements it’s regulars loved.
