2006 BEST Al Fresco Restaurant, Martha's Vineyard
Sweet Life Cafe
Ten bucks says if you were asked to imagine your ideal evening of outdoor island dining, you’d pick something with a water view. Oh, naive soul: On the Vineyard, the most delicious outdoor experience happens in Sweet Life’s fragrant garden, where threads of tiny white lights illuminate a handful of white-tableclothed seatings. The food is similarly divine: Lively island fare such as sweet-and-spicy roasted scallops, savory halibut with curry onion rings (a must), and salmon with lemon salsa round out the experience.
