Rusty Nail, Cape May, New Jersey
Kiawah Island, South Carolina
Set on a fine stretch of white-sand beach, the Tides at The Beach Club on Kiawah Island is pure seaside elegance. Consulting chef Tom Colicchio and executive chef Doug Blair created a menu with hearty cuisine (think herb-roasted chicken, steaks, and an ever-changing roster of seafood) served alongside stunning Atlantic views. kiawahislandclub.com

Cape May, New Jersey
Spend a sand-between-your-toes happy hour at Cape May’s Rusty Nail, where you can grab a bucket of conch fritters and oval-shaped crab cakes (chef Jimmy Burton’s signature shape and recipe; pictured below) as poodles donning sunglasses soak up rays and live musicians perform from inside an old boat. beachshack.com/rustynail.php
