Visiting Fredericksburg during COVID-19
By Cynthia Drake
"Though I have mainly opted for carry-out during COVID-19, I dined outside at restaurants in Fredericksburg a few times where patio dining was available.
Now considered classic visitor faves, Otto’s German Bistro and Vaudeville both earned top marks for attentive service and delicious cuisine when I visited.
Otto’s (ottosfbg.com) patio features fans and shade to keep things as cool as possible, and they’ve recently hired a new chef from Germany and made a few tweaks to their menu (don’t worry: popular mainstays like Flammkuchen and Duck Schnitzel have stayed put). Since it’s peach season, I was delighted by the dessert Duo of Schokolade and Peaches, featuring tender, sweet sliced local peaches served alongside a refreshing peach jelly and dark chocolate mousse."
