Waterfront dining in Connecticut serves seafood with a lovely view

Connecticut's shoreline is home to many excellent restaurants, from formal to casual, that provide a lovely view of harbors, marinas, boats, or lighthouses. If you are yearning for some fresh seafood, where could you find better choices? You might be dining on excellent shellfish caught right off the Connecticut shoreline, or from neighboring New England states' ports. And waterfront dining can be so ... what's the word? Romantic! Salty breezes, toasty sunshine, and flutter of the wind in the awnings. Make it happen!
