President Obama proved Sunday night that even as he fights for “the middle class” he prefers to hang out with “the upper class,” indulging in an expensive repast at the overpriced “The Sweet Life Cafe” on Martha’s Vineyard.
Dinner can easily run above $200 for two, even if the Obamas stick to the Let’s Move diet plan and share dessert.
Maybe they started with the Menemsha Lobster Soup And Salad, which according to the menu includes “Lobster crema accompanied by a lobster corn bread panzanella, corn salsa and chervil.” Not sure what some of that stuff is, but I want it.
That sets you back $17.00, which is about average for appetizers.
On the main course menu, the Obamas could choose anything from a nondescript “House Made Fettuccine with seasonal market vegetables” for $29.00 all the way up to the “Rocky Mountain Lamb Sirloin And Black Garlic Braised Lamb Belly,” served with “feta, caponata, onion rings and herb salad” for $40.00.
The wine list is a stunner that includes the chance to slurp down a $296 bottle of 2008 vintage Opus One Napa Cabernet.
The sweet life indeed!
