The Fish Camp
At The Fish Camp in Geiger Key, Fla., the star ingredient in the Hogfish Sandwich came straight from the water — literally — as Curtis watched the fresh catch go from boat to outdoor kitchen in mere minutes. The fried fillets are built on a bun smeared with creamy caper-Key lime tartar sauce and rounded out with golden onion rings on the side. "It's perfectly cooked," Curtis said, noting that the fish turns out "crispy on the outside" with a "beautiful, little-bit-of-salty crust."

Descanso Beach Club
According to Curtis, the Togarashi Ahi Tuna Salad at Descanso Beach Club on Catalina Island in California is "the perfect mouthful." This composed salad features tuna blanketed in a citrus-spiked Japanese spice, plus colorful, fresh add-ins, like watermelon radish and creamy avocado.

North Beach Bar and Grill
North Beach Bar and Grill may be located on Tybee Island, Ga., but its menu isn't limited to classic Southern fare. There's a distinct Caribbean flair to its dishes, including the jerk chicken, marinated with a sweet, savory and tangy sauce made especially bold with rum, fresh ginger and fragrant spices. "The real flavor comes from the cinnamon, the allspice, the clove," Curtis said after just one bite of the juicy meat. "There's, like, a party going on in my mouth now."
