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 ( 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."
