The building at 50 Commerce pulses with history.  Depression-era revelers snuck in 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 Moore, Commerce is homage to old New York, celebrating a city where history and contemporary sensibilities collide on every corner.

"The spicy spaghetti in a cream sauce, the deviled eggs are all good."
"The fried oysters were pretty good as well but expensive."

THIS PLACE SUCKS. All the CLASSIC crap restaurant nonsense. It starts with the "Not all of your party is here ...would you like to wait at the bar (...instead of at your table, in the COMPLETELY EMPTY restaurant). The cramped little tables (while the bigger ones sit empty). Cuisine is all butter, cheese, fat, bacon. No air conditioning ...saves them $5 bucks, at your expense. I had an egg white omelette, tasted like boiled garbage. Can't change anything on the menu is all made ahead of time, airplane food. Everything you ask for is a huge ordeal, like asking them for a live organ donation. "F" for this place

Expensive but pretty good. This is my friend's favorite restaurant so he chose what we ate. He ordered the deviled eggs (4 for $7) and the fried oysters ($4 each). The deviled eggs were really good. I don't know what they put in them but it was so addicting. I ate it slowly because I wanted to savor the taste haha. The fried oysters were pretty good as well but expensive. The other fried oysters I've had just tasted like one fried hard mess but this one tasted fried on the outside and gooey on the inside. They were good but not memorable. We waited 50 minutes for the whole roasted chicken. The chicken was pretty small and it's $30 per person even when you share it with another person. I wonder if I buy one would it still be $30 and I get the whole chicken.. hmm.. Anyways, the chicken was pretty bomb. The white parts tasted as succulent and fell off the bone as the dark meats (which I've never experienced!). My favorite part were the veggies/pureed potatoes on the bottom of the dish. They sucked in all the jus from the chicken and were SO GOOD. I wish Commerce would just make a dish out of these veggies. I ate dinner an hour before so I felt satisfied after this dish but I think without that previous dinner I would still be hungry after eating here :/ Coat check is a plus! and it's tucked into the middle of greenwich village-- a very quiet neighborhood.

Commerce is schooled in a very particular West Village art of deception. The restaurant itself is located on Manhattan's closest approximation to a cul-de-sac, little to confirm that you've arrived at the correct address, save the occasional party walking out of the faded wooden door. You expect it to be crowded, and it is. You also expect it to be small, but it isn't. The quarters can feel cramped, but that's less a function of the space and more a symptom of its popularity. The famed roast chicken is famous for a reason, but the less heralded ragu of odd things is nearly as good and shares just as easily. The only thing keeping it from greatness is the occasional over-salted item. That certainly doesn't stop Commerce from deserving yours.

Commerce is about as wonderful and unpretentious as they come. It's kind of a throwback, situated on the most adorable backstreet in the West Village with a gorgeous antique-y feel on the inside. Super vivacious and lively ambiance, really excellent food. Must try the spaghetti + a giant slab of cake for dessert. Brought my family here for Thanksgiving because it feels like home.

Commerce is a hidden gem in the West Village. The food is a little pricey but totally worth it. Everything is great. Never a disappointment

Good food, but cramped space and way too hot and stuffy in early summer.

Unquestionably the top high-end restaurant in the West Village. The menu never disappoints and I'm regularly wowed by one new dish every visit. Tucked away from 7th Ave, you'll often find the dining room and bar fairly crowded, but mostly by native New Yorkers- a true compliment to the staff in creating such a destination in demand from locals with a wide choice of wonderful dining options around. Great inventive American fare
