In March, Reader foodie Ian Pike wrote:
“It's been 18 months since Naomi Wise reviewed Craft and Commerce for the Reader, declaring mainly that it had "potential." Since then, the restaurant has seen some expansion, though the overall experience is still pretty similar to what it was in 2010.
“The biggest change is to the cocktail list, which indicates that the drinks menu must be priority number one around Craft and Commerce. This is good from a drinking standpoint, since the cocktails are legitimately tasty and keeping things fresh and interesting gives fans of mixed drinks something to look forward to. At $10 each, they're pricey, but worth it for some high class drinking.”
