THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Commerce Restaurant Review

: Bustling with energy, Commerce’s airy room is packed with tables and people of all ages. Rescued from the space’s former incarnation, Grange Hall, are colorful murals and banquettes, now covered in chestnut leather. In the center of the room, there’s almost an overabundance of round tables situated between tiled columns. Past mystique aside, this eatery resembles a fine wine: well-aged with bold flavors from the contemporary American menu. Start with the fried oysters in rémoulade and salad of “20 herbs and lettuces,” then continue to the red snapper on a bed of puréed kabocha squash in a Thai-inspired sauce that offers hints of mint and scallions. There’s also pecan-crusted Long Island duck as well as Korean-inspired Berkshire pork chop with rice cakes and kimchi-apple salad. At the restored Art Deco bar, colorful cocktails like the Daisy, a mix of vodka, house-made grenadine, lemon juice and Prosecco, are sipped. Indeed, everything “old” is new (and good) again.
