Chef Harold Moore began his culinary career at local restaurants in his home state of New Jersey. Upon graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, Harold garnered positions in several acclaimed New York City restaurants, including Daniel, Jean Georges and March, where he earned his first Michelin Star. Harold made his mark as the executive chef of the famed 3-Star French restaurant Montrachet in Tribeca. While there, Harold was nominated as the James Beard Foundation’s “Rising Star Chef of the Year”, and USA Today proclaimed a dinner at Montrachet as the “Meal of the Year.” Harold’s cooking has received much praise during his tenure in NYC, including stellar reviews by New York Magazine, The New York Times, Time Out NY, and Food and Wine Magazine.
Harold can now be found cooking away at his first New York City restaurant, Commerce, located in the heart of Greenwich Village. Harold has created, alongside his business partner, long-time NYC restaurateur Tony Zazula, an unintimidating dining experience with universal appeal and extraordinary cuisine. The menu is comprised of “the hits” from Harold’s years as a chef in New York, as well as new inspirational creations derived from his interest in the many cuisines of the world.
Commerce has been the recipient of many accolades, including being declared NYC’s “Best New Restaurant” in 2008, cooking NYC’s Best “Dish for Two” (Harold’s famed Whole Roasted Chicken), and recently being named to the “Top 101 Restaurants in NYC” by New York Magazine.
