5. Watch “Kitchen Nightmares” and then stop by Mill Street Bistro
Norwalk’s own Mill Street Bistro i being featured in a special two-part episode of “Kitchen Nightmares” beginning this Friday and wrapping up next Friday, March 8. We can’t wait to see the show and then stop by Mill Street Bistro and see if the changes stuck. We think you should do the same, watch the episode on Fox and then stop by the Bistro for a meal.

WHERE: Mill Street Bistro, 21 Mill St., Norwalk
