Sweet Life Café, Oak Bluffs

63 Circuit Avenue
Oak Bluffs , Massachusetts
Tel: 508 696 0200's insider take:

It doesn't get any sweeter than this gem of a restaurant in a restored Oak Bluffs Victorian house. Chef Scott Ehrlich's constantly changing, French-inspired menu makes good use of seafood and local produce (Ehrlich himself lives on a farm). Starters include Sweet Life artichokes with herbaceous vinaigrette, followed by squid ink fettuccini. The name of the place pretty much demands you pay attention to the dessert menu (try the dark chocolate cake with cappuccino custard, ganache and crème angalise). There's a choice of intimate dining room, outdoor bar, or a serene garden lit by candles and warmed by heaters in the fall. French owner Pierre Guerin has assembled a superb wine list, with 120 varieties from around the globe.
