The New Classic

Harold Moore

Commerce, NYC

Baker Heather Bortnem

Commerce, NYC

Although Commerce is nestled in one of the West Village’s quietest nooks, it wasn’t long before word got out about past JBF Rising Star nominee Harold Moore’s instant-classic dishes like chicken for two and Heather Bortnem’s delicious housemade breads. This dinner will feature boutique selections from New Wines of Greece.
