A staple in the East Norwalk Community for over 40 years, Nik’s Place is the place to go for delicious food, and a great spot to relax with families and friends.
Owner Steve Kydes bought the business from his Uncle Nik and Aunt Ruth when he graduated college in 2001. Steve loves working in his family’s business and has some great people behind him, including his longtime friend John Georgiadis, where they both take care of day-to-day operations as chefs, engaging with customers and maintaining their charming location.
Steve says, “Every year the business has been going up and up, and we have never had a down year.”
What really makes Nik’s place special is that it is in East Norwalk!
Steve says, “This is one of the last true neighborhoods, where everybody knows their neighbors, the business managers and owners, and departments. We have everything in East Norwalk.” As the years go by, Steve and John noticed their younger customers who have been coming for years, are grown up and now come with their children. “It’s bittersweet watching these kids grow up”, says Steve.
Nik’s Place is where memories develop and flourish, and they don’t stop here. Steve wants everyone to know that he will be leaving the business soon, and will make sure that Nik’s Place is in good hands. Steve says, “I’m still going to live in the neighborhood, and I will always care about this place.”
