Paul’s Daughter is a huge spot on the boardwalk in Coney Island that has just about anything you might want to eat after watching your friend win a giant stuffed animal by beating a six-year-old at Whac-A-Mole. You’ll find everything from pizza and hot dogs to sausage heroes and fried clams - the lobster roll and fried jumbo shrimp are our favorites. After eating some of these things with a beer at a standing table on the boardwalk, get some soft serve and eat it on the beach a few feet away.
