After Die Hard films, hunger is the number-one cause of unnecessary fist fights. Enjoy a peaceful meal with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale French-American cuisine at The Sweet Life Café in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard. This Groupon expires on June 30, 2011.
Boasting an array of accolades, The Sweet Life Café's French-American cuisine and Martha's Vineyard views have enticed a flock of hungry visitors, including the first family. Executive chef Scott Ehrlich concocts creative dishes with a touch of local catches and produce. The constantly changing selection shifts with the seasons to provide meals as unique and fresh as a hand-sewn newspaper hot off the press.
Commence the flavorful feast with an ambrosial appetizer, such as the Katama Bay oysters, deliciously displayed on the half shell with cucumber mignonette and prosecco granite, or the Island Greens, tastily tossed with cantaloupe, walnuts, marinated feta, and lemon dressing ($12–$16). Sweet-pea risotto, pine nuts, snap peas, and marjoram beurre blanc snuggle with the sautéed halibut, and the roasted chicken breast rests atop a mouthwatering mattress of couscous, braised swiss chard, and local vegetables in the edible entrees ($32–$42). The dining room—nestled in a restored Victorian home—creates a cozy atmosphere in which to nosh on a napkin or delectable dessert, such as the lavender crème brûlée or the chocolate molten cake, adorned with cinnamon ice cream, chocolate, and a pistachio cookie.
