    The wood hut that houses Rockaway Taco stands a block away from the boardwalk, dealing in hella righteous California-inspired tacos (Baja-style fish is a necessity). Fresh watermelon and pineapple-mint juices make for perfect warm weather refreshment.

    Spend a morning shirtless on the beach and then enjoy a heady pork sausage omelet, or treat yourself to some totally-worth-it ocean cramps after downing one of the city's great egg creams and a breaded chicken cutlet sandwich laced with rich brown gravy.
