Harbor Lights Restaurant Review

: Harbor Lights, housed in a century-old New England-style stone building overlooking the Connecticut waterfront, is a rare welcome port of call for year-round dining. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide a panoramic view of Norwalk harbor, complemented by the cruise ship setting, decked out with polished hardwood floors and soft lighting. Appetizers include clams casino and grilled octopus marinated in lemon, extra virgin olive oil and fresh garden herbs. Although the fish and seafood are the draw --- think pan-seared sesame-crusted tuna served with julienne papaya, mango and cucumber Thai-style salad --- there are noteworthy land-dwelling options as well, including roasted New Zealand rack of lamb with mashed potatoes and broccoli rabe sautéed in a rosemary roasted garlic port wine sauce. Among the broad selection of wines on hand, the Frog's Leap Sauvignon Blanc is ideal for the seafood starters, while Simi Cabernet Sauvignon works well with the lamb. For dessert, consider the creative banana spring roll and sorbets in a range of flavors, from passion fruit and mango to lemon.
