If you're all about location, location, location when it comes to finding your next favorite restaurant, then you'll revel in the hot spots Curtis Stone reveals on his brand-new series,  Beach Eats USA. Premiering Wednesday, Aug. 12 at 10:30|9:30c, this six-episode celebration of all things waterside will showcase the ultimate collection of beachside bites from coast to coast, serving up not only fresh, alfresco fare, but also a shining backdrop of sand and surf.

The beauty of beachside fare is that along with a stellar view, most bites are easy enough to eat sans forks and knives — and shoes, as it's all about digging in along the water. That casual, simple atmosphere is just what Curtis is after as he tracks down a series of themed eats, including burgers, like the one he tries along the Pacific Ocean in California, and boardwalk bites, like the soft-shell crab hailing from the Chesapeake Bay. In his travels, he'll check out the local beach scene up close, indulge in regional adventures, get to know the restaurants' chefs and owners, and surely dig into assorted famous eats as he chats with diners.

For Curtis, a native of Australia, being on the beach is a familiar pastime. "I have the best memories of spending time at Queenscliff Beach, which is about an hour’s drive southwest of Melbourne," he recently told FN Dish. "It’s the simplicity that made it so memorable — mucking about at the water’s edge, eating Calippo icy poles, and getting sticky fingers and a pink-blue tongue."

Mark your calendars for the premiere of Beach Eats USA on Wednesday, Aug. 12 at 10:30|9:30c.
