Former executive chef and owner of Commerce, Harold Moore has climbed the elite New York City restaurant ladder at a pace that indicates undeniable tenacity and an unyielding passion for the business of food. Moore abandoned his traditional liberal arts education in favor of the Culinary Institute of America, but not without a few sideways glances from his conventional parents. Still he persevered, knowing that there was something to this cooking thing that he needed to explore.
Moore’s approach to food is characterized by humility and respect for his patrons. He presents an accessible menu with no mysteries or obscurities. But that is not to say that complexity and technique are not evidenced in his cooking. He aspires to “cook what people want to eat.” When asked how he knows what that is, he offers a multi-tiered answer: “I think of my parents, who are straightforward and unpretentious. Then I think of everything I have learned from great chefs like Daniel. Then, of course, I think of the sophisticated New York audience.”
