Where to Dine Outdoors

If you are at all like me, you welcomed Phase Two with open arms! After months of not eating or shopping at my favorite places, I was ready to get out and enjoy what Alexandria does best… local businesses! Phase Two has given me new life, I can eat and shop at my favorite places again. Of course, it looks and feels a little different, but I commend all of our business owners for the creativity in how they could continue to service their clients and how easy they have made it for us to continue to support them. All our local businesses were without substantial earnings for the last three months, it is more important than ever that we, safely, start to support them again. The weather is nice, and you have tons of friends you need to catch up with face to face for the first time in months. We hope you take advantage of the safe outdoor dining most of our restaurants have shifted to accommodate. Below is a list of some of our favorite outdoor dining spots in Alexandria.
