After a long day lazily lounging in the sun, building sand castles or, let's face it, drinking beer and hanging with friends, the next move is to find something good to eat.

In NYC, beaches are becoming more and more of a destination. We're biking to Fort Tilden, taking the Rock-a-Bus to the Rockaways and the subway to Coney. And the food scenes at the beach is keeping pace. There are options. It's a beautiful thing.

Some of our favorite beach eats are classics (they've been around for awhile) and some are new-school. They're all delicious.

Welcome to the summer of eating surf side!
