CRANFORD - A Toute Heure, a mainstay restaurant of Cranford since 2007, announced Friday evening that it has permanently closed.

A thank you and farewell email was sent to its email subscribers, which read, "We have been blessed and honored to serve our loyal customers and the community of Cranford. It is with a heavy heart that we have to say goodbye... We are in deep gratitude for the years of your patronage and humbled by your love and support as we navigated through these last few months. We thank you and wish you and your families much health, happiness and a bright tomorrow."

A Toute Heure was located at 232 Centennial Avenue. No definite reason was given for the closure, but hardships suffered due to COVID-19 restrictions was likely the deciding factor. TAPinto Cranford has reached out to A Toute Heure for comment and will update this article as more information becomes available.
