Description: The building at 50 Commerce pulses with history. Depression-era revelers snuck in it when it was a speakeasy. As the Blue Mill Tavern, it saw 50 years of change. And as Grange Hall, it captured the heart of Greenwich Village as a beloved gathering place.Now, as Commerce, a restaurant serving fine food prepared by chef Harold Moore, the building welcomes a slew of modern visitors seeking a warm place to share a meal and a sense of community. Owned by reputable restauranteur Tony Zazula and noted Chef Harold Moore, Commerce is homage to old New York, celebrating a city where history and contemporary sensibilities collide on every corner.

Went with a group of five. Our food was very good and the wine pours were generous (which I always appreciate!). It was SO loud and we had to scream to talk to each other. It is also very cramped, but I have found that most of the trendiest restaurants in NYC are loud and cramped. I loved the building... More

Great location, great service, great atmosphere. We had the Red Snapper with eggplant and charred scallions in a Thai herb broth, the Pork chop, Chocolate souffle, expresso and cappuccino. The snapper was full of great taste but a bit pricy ($38). The pork chop was also flavorful but wasn't a chop so if you are hungry do not order. Definitely... More

It's worth going to Commerce for the Old New York charm, but next time I might just go for drinks and dessert. The food is decent, though not worth the prices. I found my pasta to be just average. The best part of the meal by far was dessert. I would definitely go back for the chocolate souffle and homemade... More

Went to "Commerce" for dinner on a Friday night. Had a bit of a wait despite having made reservations, but nothing out of the ordinary. The food was simply excellent, with special mention to "the best coconut cake in the world", which is not only the best, but also the largest piece of coconut cake you are likely to ingest......

Your Uber driver may not be able to find you, so be patient in getting a car! I went on a Tuesday night and it was packed, so I would recommend reservations. I sat at the bar and ordered a smoky tequila and honey cocktail. It literally had a huge chunk of honey comb in it. It was delicious. I... More

If you want to enjoy a restaurant away from the tourist area and have a cool New York experience in Greenwich Village. This is the place. Unique decor and can get loud but that's part of the experience. My husband and I went on a recommendation from our concierge. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of white wine from France, and... More

Commerce is in a quiet street of West Village: you wouldn't know it existed unless you knew to look. We ate here on a Saturday evening with a friend who is such a regular he and his family are normally granted the same, secluded table. We were too many for this spot, but had a good table in a bustling... More

Commerce was recommended to us by our concierge as we wanted to try something away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. We visited the restaurant on a Monday night and the atmosphere was noisy without being over-bearing. The restaurant was busy but not full and we were sat in a corner on a very small table. We assumed this... More

Quality and ambiance meets the West Village. The prices are around what you should be expecting for the quality of food and drink that you will be receiving. With art deco on the walls, pleasant smiling faces working behind the bar and among the wait staff, not to mention the 4 star quality menu, it's hard to go wrong at... More
