That’s the new RapidArc™ radiotherapy technology now available at Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center. Instead of the previous 20 to 30 minutes for radiation treatment, RapidArc™ delivers a 360o, three-dimensional dose of therapy in the time it takes to read this ad (about 90 seconds). And because it is so precisely targeted, RapidArc actually delivers less radiation and provides superior protection to healthy tissue. This is a major advance in radiation therapy. And it’s available right here, right now. Beautiful. That’s the beauty of Trinitas.

That is to say, she and chef de cuisine Kara Decker fashion a daily-changing menu of regionally sourced foods prepared without fuss or frills, like those simple, yet perfect eggs. They serve it all without pretense in a warm, wood-accented room that defines cozy. They cater to a local clientele, most of whom drop in, toting bottles of wine, for whatever is on tap that night—be it a silky house-made liver pate, or pork-and-veal meatballs strewn with caramelized onions and served with curry-charged ketchup, or a pile of hushpuppies given a shot of energizing heat by pickled jalapenos. by Andrea Clurfeld Those locals know to gird themselves for weekend nights, when the no-reservation policy A Toute Heure (save for parties of six or more) can make for long waits on the deck. 232 Centennial Ave., Cranford Yet there’s a camaraderie on that 908. 276. 6600 • www.atouteheure.com deck—some sharing of wines, A Toute Heure is open for dinner from 5 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
