Norwalk really surprised the crew of New England Boating TV with the sheer amount of fun boating activities available within a few miles of the harbor when NEBO TV visited in season 2. We were also impressed by the upscale Harbor Lights Restaurant in East Norwalk.

Located on the site of a former penny arcade overlooking the water, Harbor Lights is owned by Chris Gavrelitis, a native of Greece, who works closely with his head chef to offer a variety of Mediterranean-inspired dishes, including lamb lollipops, mussels Posillipo, grilled octopus, lobster Santorini, braised lamb shank and grilled sea bass. They also have an extensive raw bar and wine list, as well as indoor and outdoor seating.

A long dock in front of the restaurant provides plenty of room for boaters to tie up for lunch or dinner, and the west-facing dining room affords fantastic sunset views.
